These results challenge and motivate us to speculate that the decade 75-84 years could be a pivotal decade in terms of increasing difficulty in movement and awareness of evolving mobility-related capacity. 2. How Crossing Is Perceived Elderly pedestrians had to assign a score between 1 and 10 to the crossing that they had just made, according to three criteria: they found it very easy or very difficult, not at all dangerous or very dangerous, and what level of concentration this crossing had required.

For education, a t-test indicated significantly (99%) longer education in 2008 when compared to 2002. 1 year in education length was significant in the t-test. Based on these tests it was decided that the observations from 2002 should be included in the analysis as 2002 was no more different from the other years than any other year. Table 1.
