PEDESTRIAN DEFINED

Every trip begins and ends as a pedestrian trip — whether walking to a bus stop or across a parking lot to your car.

ACCORDING TO OKLAHOMA STATE LAW

A Pedestrian Is:

“Any person who is a foot or who is using a wheelchair or a means of conveyance propelled by human power other than a bicycle.”

People ask me all the time…

“Why advocate for Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education?”

MY ANSWER:

“It’s imperative to understand the needs and characteristics of pedestrians. The universal factors that affect pedestrian travel are important BECAUSE they impact the design of pedestrian facilities in our communities.”-Terence Morris, Founder, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION. 2018.

Accessible Pedestrian Signals and detectors provide information in a non-visual format by offering both audible and vibrotactile walk indications.

People ask me…

“Why Study Pedestrian Accidents?

MY ANSWER:

“Analysis of pedestrian motor-vehicle collisions can help establish engineering, education, and enforcement technology solutions.”-Terence Morris, Founder, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION. 2018.

MOST PEDESTRIAN COLLISIONS  HAPPEN BECAUSE OF 1 OR MORE OF THESE 8 REASONS:

Driver inattention
• Struck by vehicle while crossing at an intersection (50 percent of all
collisions)
• Person struck by vehicle while crossing mid-block (33 percent of all collisions)
• Struck from behind while walking along the roadway in the same
direction as traffic (particularly in rural areas)
• Motorist exceeding safe speed (contributes to most pedestrian deaths)
• Darting out into the street at mid-block (most common type of pedestrian collision for children)
• Vehicles backing up (difficult to see children and others walking behind)
• Collisions in urban areas (80 percent of all collisions)
