Applying Surrogate Safety Techniques to Assess Protected Bike Lanes

This webinar is sponsored by the ITE Industry Council

Webinar Description:
Learn how the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) used new video-based surrogate safety techniques to diagnose and validate safety improvements for protected bike lanes at six intersections in Seattle. Webinar participants will hear about why SDOT made the decision to use this new technique versus the tradition evaluative ones. Participants will also hear the benefits of implementing the video-based safety technique as well as factors to consider when deciding to implement it.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will learn:

  • Identify challenges with traditional cyclist safety evaluation techniques.
  • Introduction to surrogate road safety.
  • Considerations for implementing video-based road safety techniques.
