Abstract

In road safety circles, pedestrians, pedal cyclists and motorcyclists are often referred to as 'vulnerable road users' because of the high severity of injury that often occurs in impacts between these groups and cars. In many parts of the world, vulnerable road users comprise the bulk of road fatalities (World Health Organization and World Bank, 2004). In 2005, a total of 497 pedestrians, pedal cyclists and motorcyclists were killed on Australian roads, comprising 30.4% of total road crash fatalities (Australian Transport Safety Bureau, 2006). The largest components of this total were motorcyclists (233) and pedestrians (223) with 41 pedal cyclists killed.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
