New Jersey roads and highways can be a dangerous place for pedestrians to travel on. Though national trends show a decline among some age groups in driving, pedestrian facilities for safe walking have not kept pace with changing trends in travel behavior. This report shows some of the trends in pedestrian injuries and fatalities on New Jersey’s roads and highways. It also provides a detailed analysis of the patterns of pedestrian injuries and fatalities in New Jersey in 2012, as well as an analysis of the origins and destinations of pedestrians and drivers involved in crashes in select municipalities.
