Communities continue to advance safety through the use of innovative new tools and strategies that promote the concepts of vision zero. This session demonstrates the successful application of several new safety analysis tools including crash prediction models and the use of leading pedestrian intervals.
- Demonstrate the statewide implementation of new safety analysis tools successfully used to identify countermeasures and prioritize proactive safety improvements
- Examine engineering-based improvements such as leading pedestrian intervals to reduce crash risk for pedestrians at signalized intersections
- Learn techniques for minimizing pedestrian and bicyclist related intersection crashes and identifying countermeasures through discussion of two new NCHRP and FHWA safety resources
Moderator: Jeff Riegner, P.E., AICP, PTOE, Vice President, Whitman, Requardt & Associates
