Well Done. As you were driving at 20 mph, on a dry road, and not distracted by a mobile phone or impaired by alcohol, you were able to stop safely when the pedestrian stepped out unexpectedly.

Thinking Distance: 6m.

Braking Distance: 6m.

Overall Stopping Distance: 12m

Injury: None, the car stopped before the pedestrian.

Suggested Comparisons:

1) At this speed on a dry road, a driver who was using a mobile phone or who had been drinking, would hit the pedestrian. Re-run the simulator, and select mobile phone use or drink driving to see how this changes the result.

2) Wet weather increases braking distances. Re-run the simulator, and select wet weather, to see how much the braking distance increases, and how this changes the result.
