Role of Environmental Attributes in Explaining Pedestrian-Vehicular Crashes near Public Schools
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting 2006, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
In previous research, children have been shown to be involved in pedestrian-vehicular crashes in high numbers due to improper pedestrian behaviors. Little research has been conducted to examine the relationship between schools and pedestrian crashes. This study analyzes pedestrian-vehicular crashes in the city of Baltimore, Maryland to determine any relationships that may exist between crashes near public schools and the physical and social attributes of these schools. It was found that the presence of a driveway decreases crash occurrence and severity. Recreational facilities are shown to increase the crash occurrence and severity of crashes.
