Campus policies protect pedestrians and bicyclists

For many students at the University of California, Berkeley, walking from building to building is the best way to get around. The restrictions the university has placed on motor vehicles to make walking safer actually can make driving on campus a hassle.

This campus policy regarding vehicle access to campus has the specifically stated goal of protecting the thousands of students and others traveling on foot across the campus. Only those with special permission may take a vehicle into an area designated only for foot traffic. Vehicles that may gain access to campus include the following:

  • Campus maintenance and service vehicles
  • Public and commuter vehicles such as cars, shuttles, buses and vans
  • Construction vehicles
  • Emergency vehicles, which may include electric vehicles and golf carts
  • Commercial vehicles

Data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that motor vehicles are responsible for a whopping 70,000 pedestrian injuries every year.

In addition, there are more than 4,000 collision-related pedestrian fatalities annually. How and when do such accidents occur?
