Discussion Summary

This group discussed the challenges of mixing pedestrians and traffic, especially when the pedestrians are older adults. The context for the discussion were several recent fatalities in which older adult pedestrians were run down. The discussion covered a range of topics such as:

  • who was to blame;
  • what we can personally do to avoid being hit by cars;
  • what society might do differently to mitigate this issue;
  • what interesting articles of clothing or accessories might help make being a pedestrian less hazardous.
