Paper Abstract

Pedestrian fatal accidents in the USA are almost 15% of the total traffic deadly accidents; besides pedestrians account fo 85% of the fatal accidents without considering the vehicle's occupants. In Europe such percentages are even higher. Furthermore more than 50% of killed pedestrians are involved in an accident with a passenger's car, and between them almost 90% of killed pedestrians are hit by the front of the car.
