Indicate the actions made by the non-motorist just prior to the crash based on verbal or physical evidence, but not on speculation alone.
The action of the non-motorist immediately prior to the crash and an indication of whether the non-motorist was walking/cycling to/from school.
By collecting the actions and circumstances prior to the crash, this element is important for developing more effective roadway design and operation, education, and enforcement measures to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists and prevent crashes with motor vehicles.
What if ‘walking, running, or cycling’ and ‘entering or crossing location’ both apply?
‘Entering or crossing location’ takes precedent because this value helps to illustrate the scenario.
- If this field is completed, confirm the non-motorist check box is also indicated.
