Abstract

Accidents involving elderly pedestrians are an important statistics on accidents due to vehicular traffic. So many researches investigated loss of safety of the elderly. The transition from work to quiescence period changes individuals’ lives and their concept of mobility, but car use is still prevalent during some years. Then the elderly significantly change their way of moving, preferring to walking. Over the years they become more and more fragile and they see the decline of their physical, sensory and cognitive faculties, so their safety has to lead urban Administrations to find practical solutions to improve movement and comfort of these urban users. This study aims to explore possible improvements of an approach, which considers the interrelationships between mobility, urban structure (structure of urban public spaces) and the transport network as determinants of accidentology.
