Pedestrian protection assessment in ASEAN NCAP: future consideration

Pedestrian protection assessment in ASEAN NCAP: future consideration. In: Southeast Asia Safer Mobility Symposium 2013, 21 October 2013, Road Transport Academy (APJ), Melaka, Malaysia. (In Press) (2013)


Pedestrian protection is a significant road safety problem globally. Many related regulations and countermeasures have been introduced and implemented, especially in developed countries to reduce pedestrian casualties resulting from road accidents. However, this pedestrian safety issue is rarely highlighted in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region though its associated road accident statistics is alarming. Even with the establishment of a New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) for the region, pedestrian protection is yet to be fairly addressed. Thus, this paper is prepared to discuss the issue of pedestrian protection in terms of: magnitude of
the problem in SEA region, current established crashworthiness assessment programmes and regulations, related countermeasures through provision of Safety Assist technologies, and future consideration for its inclusion in the New Car Assessment Programme for SEA region.
