Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety in Parking Facilities
Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety in Parking Facilities
Consistent with growing societal interest in pedestrian and bicycle transportation, significant progress has been made by transportation professionals in analyzing the causes of pedestrian and bicycle crashes on public roadways and identifying crash countermeasures. However, pedestrian and bicycle crashes in parking facilities have received much less attention. Relatively few studies have examined this issue, and crashes that occur in parking facilities are often excluded from municipal or corridor pedestrian and bicycle safety studies.

An ITE committee on "Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety in Parking Facilities" has studied this issue and generated this informational report, which provides detailed information on the problem of pedestrian and bicycle crashes in surface and multi-level parking facilities, and offers best practices to enhance the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists in these facilities. This report is consistent with the "Vision Zero" initiative launched by ITE in 2016, which has the goal of zero fatalities among all road users.

This informational report also summarizes best practices to address the problem of pedestrian slips, trips, and falls in parking facilities. Although this issue was not the central focus of the committee, it is an important component of parking facility safety and must be considered in parking facility design and maintenance.
