Source: University of Toronto, Federal Highway Administration

The authors begin with a discussion on the characteristics of accidents between pedestrians and left-turning vehicles. Then, they describe various
human factors aspects of drivers. These are related to the left-turning manoeuvre and the visual search for pedestrians. This is followed by a description of pedestrian characteristics, particularly in relation to intersections. Finally, they discuss accident dynamics and related issues, and proper future research.
