This thesis is an investigation of to which extent 18 of the biggest municipalities in Denmark focus on pedestrians in their traffic safety planning, both in terms of pedestrian accidents in general and solo accidents. This is primarily investigated through the study of the 18 municipalities' traffic safety plans, as well as possible pedestrian strategies. However, interviews have likewise been used, since this method makes it possible to ask clarifying questions and acquire knowledge that might not have been possible to get by reading. The definition of a traffic accident does not include solo accidents with pedestrians, why these are not currently included in the official statistics, which the municipalities base their traffic safety plans on. For this reason, there is not much focus on solo accidents with pedestrians, and to a low extent on other pedestrian accidents. It has become clear that pedestrian safety, when talking about solo accidents, to a great extent is a matter of the daily maintenance, therefore we recommend e.g. to include the maintenance department more in the traffic safety plans.
