Injured Pedestrians in Sweden - Surface Condition


In Sweden earlier studies have shown that pedestrians are the road user group that are most injured when slippery road conditions. Out of all injured people during one year pedestrians were about one third of the injured people in traffic environment but when it is slippery almost two thirds. Compared to summer conditions the injury risk is about 6 - 8 times higher when slippery. Seniors (> 65 years old) have a very high injury risk when slippery. Because of the results from earlier studies it was important to get more information about the cause of why these accidents happen.
