A research titled ‘About pedestrian safety in Europe’ co-authored by E.Papadimitriou, G.Yannis and P.Evgenikos from NTUA, was published in the Journal Advances in Transportation Studies in July 2011. Data on pedestrians’ fatalities for the period 1997-2006 from 19 EU countries, extracted from the EU CARE database, were associated with basic road safety factors like pedestrian’s age and gender (with particular focus on children and the elderly), lighting conditions, area type (inside / outside urban area) as well as seasonality. The results suggest that, although pedestrian fatalities in Europe present a decreasing trend, pedestrian fatality rates are still increased in Southern European countries, as well as in the new Member States.
