White Paper:


Discover how to protect pedestrians and other vulnerable road users at mid-block crosswalks with lifesaving new data.

Learn about:

  • Why pedestrian fatalities are rising
  • Why non-signalized crossings are hotspots for fatalities
  • Key insights from our research study on mid-block crosswalks
  • Major low-tech and high-tech solutions for vehicle-pedestrian collisions
  • And more


Pedestrians have a right to navigate streets safely at mid-block crosswalks and other designated locations. However, too often drivers and pedestrians collide, causing thousands of preventable injuries and fatalities each year.

It is the responsibility of the traffic safety and transportation industries to implement effective, lifesaving solutions, but that requires the right information to facilitate better decision making.

TAPCO partnered with an experienced market research firm to conduct a study on the prevalence and importance of mid-block crosswalks and many pedestrian safety solutions. After months of data gathering with 120 municipal traffic engineers and public works employees across the country, a comprehensive report was created.

Its key insights are distilled in this white paper to educate others in the industry — and to help save lives.

Annual pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. are equivalent to a 747 plane crashing every single month.
