What to Fix Next: Getting to the Goal of Vision Zero

What is the best process, and what are the best techniques to identify where safety improvement funds should be allocated? Are spot improvements more effective than corridor wide improvements? How should we screen high crash locations or corridors to determine the optimal improvements?

This session examines different applications and resources to make informed decisions.
