Preprint, 2018

Nearly two out of three fall crashes with seriously injured pedestrians occur in the winter (December-March), i.e. twice as many pedestrians are seriously injured during these four months compared to the rest of the year. During the winter period (December-March) almost nine out of ten fall crashes are caused in the traffic environment due to slipping on ice/snow.
