In a new publication in the Economics of Transportation by Justin Tyndall, “The effect of front-end vehicle height on pedestrian death risk,” Tyndall tests for the effect of taller vehicles on pedestrian outcomes in crashes using vehicle design measurements. Using recent crash-level data, Tyndall shows that a pedestrian hit by a full-size SUV is twice as likely to die compared to being struck by a car, under similar crash conditions.
