  Review of Canadian Research on Pedestrian Safety

Abstract
This paper prepared for FHWA reviews Canadian research on pedestrian safety. Topics covered are: the use of prompts to increase the safety of pedestrians at crosswalk; modification of pedestrian signals to increase the clarity of the indication for the clearance interval; the use of pedestrian activated flashing beacons at midblock crosswalks and at crosswalks on major roads at intersections not controlled by traffic signals; the use of advance markings to increase safety of pedestrians at marked crosswalks; research on interventions to increase the conspicuity of crosswalks; and the use of multifaceted programs to increase yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks.
