Final Technical Report

Increases in non-motorized travel also raise important safety issues, as pedestrians and bicyclists constitute the most vulnerable road users. Therefore, tools to identify locations with a high risk of collisions between motor-vehicles and pedestrians or bicyclists are essential to insure that gains in mobility, air quality, and health are not accompanied by higher rates of injuries and fatalities in vulnerable road users. The overall goal of this project is to assist in complying with Washington State Strategic Highway Safety Plan of zero fatality and serious injury by 2030, and in reducing the number of pedestrian and bicyclists involved in motor-vehicle collisions on state highways.
