New Study by Hunter Professors Examines Pedestrian-Cyclist Accidents in New York
While considerable attention has been paid to pedestrians involved in motor vehicle accidents, little attention has been accorded to pedestrians involved in accidents resulting from collisions with cyclists. This lack of scrutiny is surprising given the growing popularity of cycling in America. With so many more individuals adopting cycling as an alternative means of transportation, the potential for collisions with pedestrians has grown markedly. In a newly-released study Hunter Professors Peter Tuckel and William Milczarski use empirically-gathered data to examine the incidence of crashes between pedestrians and cyclists, the profile of pedestrians most likely to be involved in these collisions and where these collisions happen.
