A Distance-Based Method to Estimate Annual Pedestrian and Bicyclist Exposure in an Urban Environment

Source: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

This report presents methods that can be used to measure the safety of places, including intersections, road segments, and parking lots, when considering the effect on pedestrians and bicyclists.

The report has two major goals: (1) to describe a methodology for measuring pedestrian/bicyclist exposure and (2) to demonstrate the application of this methodology by calculating the annual pedestrian and bicyclist exposure for a large urban environment in terms of 100 million pedestrian/bicyclist mi (161 million pedestrian/bicyclist km) of roadway or motor vehicle shared facility traveled.
