Vulnerable road users (VRUs) include pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists, all of whom lack the basic safety protections provided to vehicle occupants by automobiles. Fatality rates for VRUs remain unacceptably high. To meaningfully improve roadway safety for VRUs, it is important to understand the safety problems and domains with the highest potential for improvement based on the factors that contribute to crashes and the factors that can be mitigated by behavioral changes.

BTSCRP Web-Only Document 6: Communicating Safe Behavior Practices to Vulnerable Road Users, from TRB's Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program, presents a toolkit to help traffic safety practitioners communicate safe behavior practices to VRUs.

Supplemental to the document are dataset appendices that include Campaign Information, a Workshop Feedback Resolution Matrix, and a Sample Media Buy as well as a Toolkit Presentation.


What is skim?

The Chapter Skim search tool presents what we've algorithmically identified as the most significant single chunk of text within every page in the chapter. You may select key terms to highlight them within pages of each chapter.
