Much attention is being paid to pedestrian safety by international working groups such as EEVC WG17, in research projects such as APROSYS ( and consumer organisations like Euro NCAP ( In addition legal requirements are in place, like the EU directive 2003/102/EC. However, it can be seen from the BRON (Bestand geRegistreerde Ongevallen Nederland) accident database that in the Netherlands more people get killed or injured while riding a bicycle than as a pedestrian. This is a main concern of the Fietsersbond, the Dutch Cyclists' Union that campaigns for better cycling conditions in the Netherlands.
