Samenvatting This report looks at traffic crashes during 2004-2006 where a vulnerable road user was killed. A vulnerable road user is defined as a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, or a bicyclist. The examination of the crashes in this report is limited to: crashes between a pedestrian and a road motor vehicle, crashes between a bicyclist and a road motor vehicle, and crashes involving a motorcyclist with or without another vehicle involved. Road Safety Vision 2010 is Canada’s national road safety plan. It has the goal of improving many aspects of road safety, including reducing the number of fatalities among pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists. Road Safety Vision 2010 uses the years 1996-2001 as a baseline against which to measure progress. In this report, statistics from the years 2004-2006 will sometimes be compared to statistics from the 1996-2001 baseline period for various aspects of crashes involving fatally injured pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists. The study examines elements from Transport Canada’s national collision database in order to describe various characteristics of traffic crashes involving the death of a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, or a bicyclist. All statistics refer to the 2004-2006 time-frame unless otherwise noted. Statistics are based on average annual figures to offset any year-to-year extremes. Where statistics from 1996-2001 are referenced, the data has also been averaged in the same way. It was assumed that proportional distributions of known values for data elements described in this report were representative of those in jurisdictions where the information was not recorded or was reported as unknown.
