Indicate the type of non-motorist involved in the crash.
The type of person involved in a crash.
- A non-motorist is any person other than a motorist, and includes:
- A person on foot.
- A person walking, running, jogging, hiking, sitting or lying within the trafficway or on private property, etc.
- Persons in buildings
- A person on personal conveyance
- A person ejected from a transport vehicle who has come to rest in the trafficway during a prior unstabilized situation and struck in a second or subsequent unstabilized situation is considered a pedestrian
However, a person ejected from a transport vehicle during one unstabilized situation is still considered an occupant and not a pedestrian for the purposes of that unstabilized situation.
It is important to know the person type for classification purposes in order to evaluate specific countermeasures designed for specific people.
- If this field is complete, confirm the non-motorist check box is also indicated.
- If Sequence of Events indicates involvement with a ‘pedestrian’ or ‘cyclist’, then at least one non-motorist person type must be entered.
