In the US people of color are disproportionately affected by pedestrian crashes. The purpose of this study was to examine the potential for racial bias in driver yielding behaviors at midblock crosswalks in low and high income neighborhoods located in the sprawling metropolitan area of Las Vegas, NV. Bias in driver yielding behavior may be one influencing factor in higher rates of pedestrian crashes for people of color.
People of color are disproportionately affected by pedestrian crashes. From 2001 to 2010 the pedestrian fatality rates for black and Hispanic men were more than twice the rate for white men, and American Indian/Alaska Native men had a rate more than 4 times higher (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013).
