Abstract

To improve campus safety for students, crosswalks on Valparaiso University's campus were selected for observation to highlight how pedestrians (primarily students) and vehicles interact. Various crosswalks on campus were observed, including the crosswalks by Beacon Hall, the Harre Union, and the Duesenberg Welcome Center. These observations evaluated the safety of campus and determined if more safety precautions were needed. This study used video footage to observe these interactions. By evaluating the footage, researchers were able to determine if there needs to be more education on pedestrian safety and/or more safety precautions in place at campus crosswalks.
