Pedestrian safety

Between 2010 and 2019, an annual average of 59 pedestrians were killed in road crashes, including a relatively large number of older pedestrians. Important factors in pedestrian crashes are the speed at which cars are driving, the pedestrian’s appraisal of the speed of the car, distraction and lighting.

Sustainably safe crossings, safe school and other pedestrian routes, a pedestrian-friendly car front and truck side shields can help to improve pedestrian safety. This can be read in the updated SWOV Fact sheet Pedestrians.
