CR 146A: Vehicle speeds and the incidence of fatal pedestrian collisions. Volume 2: Case data

Summary

The aim of this study by the NHMRC Road Accident Research Unit was to estimate the likely effect on pedestrian fatalities of a reduction in vehicle travelling speed. Results were based on detailed investigations of 176 fatal pedestrian collisions in the Adelaide area between 1983 and 1991. Estimates were developed for a range of speed reduction scenarios. Volume I of this report contains detailed findings for each speed reduction scenario along with a description of the method used and supporting references. Volume II contains the details of all 176 cases.
