Engineering Safety: Most crashes caused by driver behavior

“It’s hard to engineer human behavior,” says Diane Myers-Krug, of the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

This study and many others confirm that driver and pedestrian error account for the majority of pedestrian accidents every year.  While it is great that vehicle manufacturers continue to develop technology meant to reduce these incidents, nothing will ever replace good driving behavior including not being distracted visually or cognitively while behind the wheel of a car.
