This webinar will focus on Vision Zero for vulnerable transportation users, such as pedestrians, as they operate in an environment with other modes of travel. A confluence of factors have recently led to rising fatalities and serious injuries for these users; this webinar will explore those developments, and underscore the importance of remaining committed to a Vision Zero strategy. Attendees will learn about the value of adapting a “safe systems” approach to their safety planning and programming efforts, along with some of the tradeoffs to different modes of travel that may result. Finally, several examples of successful projects will be presented, to demonstrate the real-world use of Vision Zero principles and dispel some of the myths surrounding their use.
- Learn about the magnitude and historical context for recent increases in pedestrian fatalities and serious injuries;
- Learn how certain urban/suburban environments are contributing to a disproportionate increase in pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities;
- Be able to communicate how the safe systems approach is altering the traditional safety paradigm across different modes of travel;
- Identify successful Vision Zero techniques and tools for multimodal safety, and understand some of the tradeoffs inherent in their use;
- Understand the reality of implementing Vision Zero in a real-world environment, and be able to dispel some of the “myths” around design limitations and operational standards.
