There is growing demand and use of the iRAP model in urban areas. In many countries, collisions with pedestrians are a leading cause of death and injury. In some countries, over half of all road deaths are caused by collisions between vehicles and pedestrians.
The existing models capture pedestrian star ratings and countermeasures, with a range of potential improvements and innovation identified by city partners around the world. With this in mind, enhanced pedestrian coding, reporting and analysis is being explored to see how the iRAP model can better support end-user needs to improve pedestrian safety and save lives.
iRAP Urban Pedestrians is currently under development.
For more information on pedestrian risk and countermeasures to improve pedestrian safety, see the iRAP Toolkit .
