This study aims to analyze pedestrian attitudes and behaviour of pedestrians towards road safety in Europe by using the responses of pedestrians from a large sample including 21 European countries at the SARTRE-4 research project. For that reason, a descriptive analysis was carried out. Several issues were examined, for example pedestrians’ concern about road safety, the effect of age, gender and town size on behaviour etc. Furthermore, factor and cluster analyses were also performed. The descriptive analysis revealed significant trends regarding pedestrians’ attitudes and behaviour. The factor analysis revealed eight factors of pedestrian attitudes and behaviour. The cluster analysis based on travel habits revealed four groups of pedestrians, while the cluster analysis based on attitudes and behaviour towards road safety disclosed three groups of pedestrians. The results are discussed with respect to potential reasons leading to particular attitudes and behaviour, the pedestrians’ characteristics, the share of each group in different countries etc.
