Cover: Safety Benefits of Walkways, Sidewalks, and Paved Shoulders—Booklet

Safety Benefits of Walkways, Sidewalks, and Paved Shoulders—Booklet (FHWA-SA-10-022)
Annually, around 4,500 pedestrians are killed in traffic crashes with motor vehicles in the United States. Pedestrians killed while “walking along the roadway” account for almost 8 percent of these deaths. Many of these tragedies are preventable. Providing walkways separated from the travel lanes could help to prevent up to 88 percent of these “walking along roadway” crashes.
Target Audience: Engineers, planners, state and local DOT staff, and safety practitioners
