Integrating policy approaches for vulnerable road users
Haworth, Narelle L. (2006) Integrating policy approaches for vulnerable road users. In 29th Australasian Transport Research Forum, 27-29 September 2006, Gold Coast, Australia.
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.

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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
