    Safety of Vulnerable Road Users. Mobility is part of daily life. Anyone using the roads is at risk of injury or death in the event of a road accident. Some people are more at risk than others and are commonly referred to as Vulnerable Road Users (VRU). The term has been defined in different ways. Your Trusted Healthcare Equipment Supplier. Safety and Mobility offer a wide selection of equipment for use in Aged Care, Hospital and Disability and Rehabilitation sectors as well as specific items for Bariatric clients. Our equipment is sourced from both locally and internationally renowned brands as well as Safety and Mobility’s own range of high quality equipment manufactured with our.

    Objective: This study used medico-legal data to investigate fatal older road user (ORU, aged 65 years and older) crash circumstances and risk factors relating to four key components of the Safe. There are a range of technological strategies that can be implemented to improve road safety. Transport experts have advocated the use of larger road signs and tactile road markers. Planned placement of road signs and intersections is important for older road users, since a person’s field of view decreases with age.

    and mobility, safer vehicles, safer road users (with a focus on legislation) and post-crash care. This work culminates in the Global status report on road safety, a major global monitoring and evaluation tool first published in that WHO produces approximately every 2 years. The report gives a full description of the road safety situation.   Road safety is an essential component in sustainable urban mobility Published on at In European cities, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists make up 70% of road .

The EU‐sponsored VRUITS project assesses the safety and mobility impacts of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) applications for Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), assesses the impacts of current and upcoming ITS applications on the safety and mobility of VRUs, identifies how the usability and efficiency of ITS applications can be improved, and recommends which actions have to be taken at a policy Cited by: 2.

Despite substantial progress in improving road safety over the last decade, vulnerable road users (VRUs) have not profited as much as vehicle occupants from these developments.

One of the potential measures to improve traffic safety is through the use of intelligent transport systems (ITS), by making vehicles or infrastructures more intelligent. The other important issue highlighted in this paper is that older road users are mostly considered as a homogeneous group. It is very rare for initiatives that are designed to improve older people׳s mobility and safety to intentionally target a specific segment of this population, apart from those with mobility restrictions.

for older road user safety and mobility will improve transportation for all users. The information ob-tained during the trip identified several planning, design, and operational changes which could be implemented in the U.S. to improve the mobility and safety of older road users.
