Pedestrian Safety Manual

Introduction

Many people know the horror of fatal accidents on our roads. Of the 10 thousand killed every year, more than 40% are pedestrians. Drivers MUST avoid pedestrians - though they are the least regulated or controlled of road users. They are the most difficult to persuade into safer road conduct.
