Evaluating the Safety Effects of Decriminalizing Jaywalking on California Streets
University of California, Berkeley
University of California Institute of Transportation Studies
This research project will review major scholarly databases, including Pubmed, TRIS, and others for articles and reports documenting risks from decriminalizing jaywalking including details such as time from implementation of the law/regulation, crash type, level of injury(ies), and other considerations. The team will use the information collected to estimate the impact of decriminalizing jaywalking in California. Researchers with expertise in data analyses, advocates of pedestrian safety, and proponents of road safety and mobility in general will also be consulted in order to fine-tune the analysis.
