A Statistical Accident

Abstract Remit

The New Zealand Agency (NZTA) investigated the relationship, if any, between school travel plans and improved road safety, in particular for pedestrians and cyclists.  

Using crash data within a 500 m radius around eleven schools in Auckland City over a 10 year period, this assessment indicates that the following decrease in reported crashes occurred since the launch of the travel plans:

_ 57% involving cyclists and pedestrians aged five to thirteen
_ 30% involving all pedestrian and cycling
