According to the 2018 Global status report on road safety, launched by the WHO in December 2018, the number of annual road traffic deaths has reached 1.35 million. Road traffic injuries are now the leading killer of people aged 5-29 years. The burden is disproportionately borne by pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, in particular those living in developing countries.
There are several different factors influencing driving and walking, ranging from those regarding the vehicle itself, to the human factor, to those intimately related to the design of infrastructure and/or traffic regulation (both on a normative and operative level).
Additionally, the ways of moving are experiencing changes in many countries, to the point that we can observe an increase in transportation by bike, due to, among other reasons, the promotion by national and local governments, as well as the appearance of a series of personal mobility vehicles, among which skates particularly stand out.
Hence, this Special Issue aims to collect research experiences performed in different contexts that contribute to obtaining a better knowledge of this topic, and, therefore, researchers are encouraged to submit their papers.
Papers addressing the development and validation of new instruments, as well as the assessment of measures and countermeasures through multidisciplinary approaches, are particularly welcome.
