Abstract

Among European countries, child pedestrian fatalities are highest in the United Kingdom, and cycling is increasing there as an environmentally friendly yet hazardous form of transportation. We assisted the London Borough of Merton in addressing the safety of these two groups by determining areas of perceived risk, the existing threat of injury, and the relationship between these two types of data. Finally, we were able to propose reasons and solutions to the Borough to increase safety, and eventually, vulnerable road user numbers.
