Pedestrian Safety Evaluation Plan

Grants and Contracts Details


This research is broadly concerned with improving the safety of pedestrians in the Metro Louisville area. It will combine observational studies of areas with high pedestrian traffic (or which have been documented as being particularly hazardous) with survey data to recommend how the City of Louisville can improve its pedestrian education program. Observational studies will analyze automated pedestrian counts and identify the conditions under which pedestrians are vulnerable to crash exposure. This will be supplemented with pedestrian crash data to identify the causal factors underwriting crash patterns. Knowledge of these factors can improve the city government’s efforts to mitigate pedestrian-vehicle accidents. Surveys conducted through Louisville Metro social media and distributed through other outlets will analyze the effectiveness of educational outreach and enforcement activities. Combining observational data with survey data will underpin guidance intended to reduce the frequency of hazardous walking and driving practices.
