Pedestrians and road safety
Information Sheet 70
Pedestrians comprise the largest single road user group because almost everyone is a pedestrian at some point. People walk for leisure, to go to work, school or local shops, and to access other modes of transport. In Australia, there has been a consistent downward trend in total road fatalities, including pedestrian fatalities. Since 2005, pedestrian fatalities as a percentage of all road fatalities have remained relatively stable.
