To be able to walk around in the neighborhood is an important part of daily life. There are elderly people who cannot go for a walk or cannot go to shop in their neighborhood because of not accessible pathway or pavements, feelings of being insecure or fear of traffic accidents. The purpose of this study is to investigate the realities of the falling accident in the elderly people in neighborhood districts. The elderly people who had the falling experiences were about 30%, some people had severe injury by bone fracture. But they did not think to be dangerous the falling places. In the future, when the local governments make an accessibility basic plan, it is a problem how to find dangerous places of falling before the accident happens.
