Risk Factors for Pedestrian and Bicycle Crashes

The objective of this work is to develop a tool for the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to improve methods to identify and prioritize locations with increased risk, rather than a simple crash history, so they can be proactively treated. Using the consultant's work as a starting point, this research would continue to investigate the factors related to the common causes of pedestrian and bicycle crashes. This research will seek to identify key risk factors that contribute to higher than average numbers of serious or fatal pedestrian and bicycle crashes to generate best practices elements that support decision making and prioritization.
