Right turn onto a pedestrian is one of the most common crash types for pedestrian death and serious injury at signalised intersections. This occurs when the driver has the ability to filter at the intersection (i.e. they choose when they turn right).
In many jurisdictions, the default for signalised intersections is to allow filtering and if there is a crash history then implement turn controls. We think this is the wrong way around – the default should be fully controlled right turns, and where risk is proven to be low, filtering may be permitted.
This frightening video was captured at the intersection of Canterbury Road and Station Street, Box Hill, Victoria.
