Infrastructure Solutions to Improve Pedestrian Safety

Pedestrians present more than a third of the fatalities and nine percent of total road accident injuries in Israel. The share of pedestrian fatalities out of the total road fatalities in Israel is higher than in most industrialized countries (according to OECD data). This finding and its over-time stability arouse concerns, especially when dealing with basic road safety indicators, e.g. fatality rate per population, which are relatively low in Israel in comparison with other countries, and decreasing general fatality and injury trends recently observed. Thus, a comprehensive study was initiated aimed at conducting a detailed analysis of pedestrian accidents, a diagnosis of infrastructure problems, and assembling a collection of solutions.
