Among the most fatal types of collisions are, respectively, the pedestrians with cars, buses and motorized two or three-wheel

Survey conducted by the Ministry of Health of São Paulo shows that 39% of traffic deaths in the state were notified of pedestrians. Compared to the number of victims of fatal automobile accidents involving vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles, victims of roadkill lead the ranking of deaths.

Of the total of 5,394 deaths from traffic accidents reported in the state in 2011, 2,114 were pedestrians, 1,721 motorcyclists, 1,273 passenger automobile vehicles and 286 cyclists.

Among the most fatal types of collisions are, respectively, the pedestrians with cars, buses and motorized two or three wheels.

Compared to 2010, when 1,968 deaths were reported by roadkill in the state, the number of deaths recorded in the state was 9% higher in 2011.

The number of admissions of pedestrians also had increased from 10,155 in 2010 to 10,548 in 2011. In relation to admissions, the number of victims of pedestrian accidents is lower only to motorcyclists.

"When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, all the energy of the impact is transferred to the victim, who does not have safety devices such as seat belts, upholstery, air bag protection bars, among others, to minimize the energy released after the crash. motorcycles or even bicycles are capable of causing deaths due to this energy transfer. Moreover, to be very fragile when exposed to accidents with other vehicles, the human body is vulnerable to severe trauma that can compromise vital functions ", Gustavo says Feriani, medical supervisor of the Rescue Group and the Emergency Assistance (Grade) Secretariat.
