An international study of the exposure of children to traffic

There are large international differences in the extent to which children walk and cycle. These findings would suggest that differences in exposure to risk may be an important contributor to international differences in pedestrian injury rates. There are also substantial differences in pedestrian exposure to risk by levels of car ownership-differences that may explain socioeconomic differentials in pedestrian injury rates.
