This memorandum contains a brief analysis of the pedestrian crashes pre- and post improvement along three corridors in New Jersey: downtown Newark (Market and Ferry Sts); Route 27 in Elizabeth, Roselle, and Linden; and Route 70 in Cherry Hill. The data analyzed come from CAIT’s Plan4Safety database of reported automobile crashes involving pedestrians from January 2003 to May 2011. In summary, we found that pedestrian improvements may have been a factor in reducing pedestrian crashes in the dense urban area of downtown Newark where mixed pedestrian-automobile traffic is more common.
