Research by the Oregon State University (OSU) College of Engineering and Portland State University (PSU) suggests a trio of roadway treatments would enable people age 65 and older to travel on foot more safely.

The study is important because older pedestrians are among the most likely to be killed in traffic accidents, according to the National Safety Council. In the United States in 2020 there were 709 pedestrian fatalities in the 65-74 age group – 20% of total road-user deaths in that age bracket.
