Vulnerable Road Users
The projects in this theme seek to better understand the over-representation of these groups in crashes and the severity of their outcomes, and to develop interventions to address these issues.
For motorcyclists, there is a focus on licensing and training issues, while patterns of activity and road environment issues are relatively more important in pedestrian and bicyclist projects.
