    • Abstract:
      Pedestrian crashes are a major traffic safety concern in Florida. This project aims to improve pedestrian safety on

      Florida’s state roads by identifying crash patterns and contributing factors at both the statewide and site-specific

      level and proposing potential countermeasures to reduce pedestrian crashes. The specific project objectives include:

      (1) perform a comprehensive review of existing pedestrian safety studies; (2) identify statewide pedestrian crash

      patterns and causes; (3) identify factors contributing to pedestrian injury severity; and (4) identify and analyze

      pedestrian high crash locations at both signalized and non-signalized locations for crash causes and propose the

      potential countermeasures for these crash causes.

      A total of 6,434 pedestrian crashes that occurred on state roads during 2008-2010 were identified and analyzed.

      Police reports for these crashes were carefully reviewed to obtain additional crash details, including those from

      police descriptions and illustrative sketches. In addition, additional roadway information not available from the state

      roadway inventory such as types of crosswalks were visually identified. Both of these efforts were performed using

      two in-house web-based systems developed to facilitate police report review and data collection.

      At the statewide level, crash patterns as they relate to pedestrian, vehicle, traffic control, roadway, and environmental

      characteristics were analyzed. As pedestrian crashes are typically severe, a mixed logit model was developed to

      identify factors contributing to pedestrian injury severity at signalized and non-signalized locations. At the sitespecific level, pedestrian high crash locations were identified by identifying clusters of pedestrian crashes at both

      signalized and non-signalized locations. Both district-wide and statewide pedestrian high crash locations were

      identified. The statewide locations were further analyzed to identify location-specific crash causes and
