40 Fact Sheets General Facts Facts About Aging and Safety Driving Driver Re-Test Planning Ahead Pedestrian Safety for Seniors Quick Facts & Statistics Walking is good for you Pedestrian Safety for Seniors Walking is a great way to improve your physical fitness, health and general well-being. It can help: Lower your blood pressure and cholesterol and strengthen your heart and cardiovascular system. Increase your bone density. Produce hormones that help your muscles stay strong. Decrease stress, make you feel better and sleep more soundly. Lose weight or help you maintain a healthy weight level. Improve your flexibility. Flexibility is an important key to maintaining your independence and may even extend the number of years you can continue to drive safely. But seniors are overrepresented in pedestrian fatalities In 2003 in BC: 74 pedestrians were killed. 32 of those fatalities were seniors 65 years and older. While seniors represent approximately 13% of our population, they represent over 40% of the pedestrian fatalities. 1,775 pedestrians were injured. 237 of the injuries were to seniors 65 and older. The Canada-wide statistics show a similar trend: Seniors represent about one third of Canada s pedestrian fatalities. 110 of the 334 pedestrians killed in 2001 were age 65 or older. Unfortunately, it seems that each year more senior pedestrian are involved in serious crashes. Often their injuries are more serious than would be the case with younger pedestrians and their recovery time is longer. What can you do to increase your safety? Most pedestrian crashes are preventable and the benefits of the exercise gained through walking usually outweigh the risks.* There are things you can do as a pedestrian to increase your safety. Make sure that other road users can see you. Wear white or light-coloured clothing. Pedestrians are especially hard to see in low-light conditions at night, dawn, dusk, on dark, rainy days and in the winter. Consider wearing clothing that has retroreflective material on it. You can also buy retroreflective tape to put on your clothing, cane, walker, etc. Retroreflective materials give off light when headlights shine on them, but remember that they do not work in daylight. Make sure that you can see where you are going. If you are walking in an unlit or poorly lit area, consider carrying a flashlight. It will help you see where you are going and will make it easier for others to see you. Dress for the occasion. Wear comfortable walking shoes and if you sometimes walk with a cane or walker, consider taking it with you for balance. * If you have a medical condition that may put you at risk, talk to your doctor regarding the benefits of walking before beginning a walking program.
