The Safe System Approach encompasses safe roads, safe road users, safe speeds, safe vehicles, and post-crash care – all with a shared responsibility to meet the goal of zero severe injuries and fatalities on our roadways. This session presented emerging Safe System practices and considerations for autonomous vehicles, intersection assessment and control evaluation, and proactive risk measurement through data analytics.
- Describe how to use the Intersection Control Evaluation (ICE) process to identify safer solutions earlier in the project development process, and provide consistent consideration and proper documentation regarding decisions leading to the selection of a preferred alternative.
- Explain how to assess the circumstances of crashes at intersections and make recommendations such that the kinetic energy imposed on the human body be kept at levels that are tolerable in terms of survivability and degree of harm.
- Identify how safety analytics can be used to measure high-risk road user behaviors, and how to combine findings from safety analytics with the safe system methodology to more effectively reduce crashes.
- Understand the main safety benefits and risks related to the AV-active transportation interface, and how AVs may advance or hinder Vision Zero/Safe System policies and approaches.
