These charts are intended to give general information on candidate measures
that should be considered when trying to reduce a pattern of pedestrian crashes
at a location or roadway section. Many pedestrian crashes are the direct result

In such cases, pedestrian and/or motorist education
and enforcement activities may be helpful.For an example of the Pedestrian Crash Matrix, visit the Bicycle Crash Matrix at www.bicyclinginfo.org
