Gender Trends in Florida Pedestrians Deaths
 

A September 2018 Study in the Journal of Traffic and Transportation Engineering (India Study) shows that Males actually take more attempts to cross unmarked, uncontrolled mid-block crosswalks.  However, more Females are killed because Females cross slower than Males.


Gender Differences in Pedestrian Rule Compliance and Visual Search at Signalized and Unsignalized Crosswalks -
Ariane Tom, Marie-Axelle Granié. Gender Differences in Pedestrian Rule Compliance and VisualSearch at Signalized and Unsignalized Crossroads. Accident Analysis and Prevention, Elsevier, 2011,43 (5), pp.1794-1801. ￿10.1016/j.aap.2011.04.012￿. ￿hal-00851149￿



I believe if the FDOT would release this Public Information it would show a dramatic increase in Female Pedestrian Deaths at Marked and especially at Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalks in locations that violate Federal Safety Standards.
