Abstract: At-grade pedestrian crossovers (PXO's) have been installed at about 700 locations in Metropolitan Toronto to assist pedestrians in crossing busy streets at minimal delay to vehicular traffic. A study was conducted of the 10-year accident history from 1975-84 of the 13 PXO's installed from 1979-81. Accidents and injuries were seen to increase, with all of the increase attributable to the weekdays and to non-residents of Metropolitan Toronto.
