Services: Analytical studies, Data analysis, Public safety analysis

Research Area: Public Safety

From 2011 to 2015, approximately one percent of individuals involved in Indiana collisions were non-motorists. Despite a 1.6 percent increase from 2014 to 2015, the number of non-motorists involved in collisions has remained fairly constant over the past 5 years with a -0.1 percent annual rate of change. Annually, the number of non-motorists killed increased by nearly 6 percent while the number non motorists injured decreased by 2 percent.

Approximately 16 percent of all individuals killed (12 percent) or injured (4 percent) in Indiana collisions were non-motorists during 2015. Of the three categories of non motorists, on average between 2011 and 2015, pedestrians typically comprised about 62 percent of the total, followed by pedalcyclists (on average about 35 percent of total non-motorists).
