My new paper Pedestrian Deaths and Large Vehicles was published in #Economics of #Transportation. I estimate the role of increasingly large vehicles on #pedestrian deaths in the US over the past 20 years.…
US drivers have hit and killed over 100,000 pedestrians since 2000. The rate of pedestrian deaths has been increasing recently, even as driver/passenger deaths have fallen.
At the same time, the average weight of a vehicle involved in a crash has gone up by about 200 kg. Light trucks (#SUVs/#pickuptrucks/minivans) have also become more common relative to cars, SUVs as a share of vehicles rose by ~60%.

Oh @cmrlofficial . Why so averse to learning? New stations, same old access problems. #Senior #Joyride thread - I spy with my jaundiced eye. #ChennaiMetro #A11y #Fails @DisabilityIndia
Really @chennaicorp ! This is the access to Nehru Park Chennai Metro station? At points the pavement itself is non existent with bus and Poonamallee High Rd traffic whizzing by. Senior citizen required support on both sides with parking 50 m away. @cmrlofficial @DisabilityIndia
1 foot footpath with trip with at one side and someone sitting blocking the other side of the tree. Not to mention the auto blocking the way too. #Pedestrian #Accessibility #NotACakeWalk
