Major street crossings may pose a significant barrier the effectiveness and quality of a bicycle boulevard. Treatments of high quality should be selected to mitigate these barriers. Otherwise, it is recommended that another route or crossing that permits a higher level treatment should be selected. Road Safety & Pedestrian distractions while walking in traffic Background information: Road Safety authorities often create awareness of the dangers of distractions to drivers and neglect to focus on the distractions facing pedestrians as well. We are now finding more and more accidents as a result of pedestrian inattentiveness.

Designing for Pedestrian Safety –Sidewalk Design 2‐2 Learning Outcomes: At the end of this module, you will be able to: Ö. Describe the operational and safety benefits of shoulders and sidewalks. Ö. Select the appropriate design requirements for sidewalks.
Access to bus by person in a wheelchair. Source: Designing for Pedestrian Safety. Proper placement of bus stop past the marked crosswalk, which encourages pedestrians to cross the street behind the bus, where sight distance to oncoming traffic is better than crossing in front of the bus. Source: Designing for Pedestrian Safety. Pedestrian crossing speed is one of the significant design parameters while designing signalized intersection infrastructures in traffic engineering. Pedestrian crossing speed has been found varying largely from the existing manual Indian Road Congress (IRC) estimated walking speed at crosswalks of 1. 2 m/s (Indian Road Congress ). This Cited by:

Parents and caregivers can help their older children choose the safest crossing location to use along a route. Don’t blindly trust the pedestrian crosswalk light. Look both ways before crossing the street. Stay sober. Your chances of getting in an accident increase when walking while intoxicated.
If one lane of traffic stops for you, it doesn’t mean that another will follow suit. Check every lane before crossing the street.

It is often difficult or impossible for a person using a wheelchair, scooter, walker, or other mobility device to cross a street if the sidewalk on either side of the street ends without a curb ramp.
It is also. The US is a dangerous place for pedestrians, where they comprise some 13 per cent of all motor vehicle related deaths. When crossing any road you should take extreme care and whenever possible cross at a pedestrian crossing or walkway, traffic lights, junction or other ‘safe’ place.
