Résumé

This paper examines the relationship between reported collisions involving pedestrians and interaction rates based on field observation of street crossing behavior at selected urban intersections in Quebec, Canada (n=60). Data from a naturalistic observational study of pedestrian street crossing behavior was used to calculate interaction rates (n= 4286 observations) per intersection. Collisions (2003-2012, n=358 pedestrian collisions) were mapped and pooled at the same intersections to evaluate the relationship between the two. We found a positive and significant correlation between collisions (all-years) and interaction rates (Spearman’s coefficient between 0.329 and 0.340). This seems to be particularly the case on larger arterial roads.
