Authors: Jain U.
Rastogi, Rajat
Published in: Current Science
Abstract: Pedestrians are the largest number of road accident victims. Majority of these accidents have been reported at mid-block locations where pedestrian crossing facilities were missing. Pedestrian crossing warrants (PCWs) help in identifying the type of facility to be provided at a location. This article examines the literature on PCWs around the world. Various factors used in the existing PCWs have been identified and summarized. The discussion highlights the limitations associated with existing guidelines and the need to improve upon the existing PCWs.
