Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, February 4, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Research Report 893: Systemic Pedestrian Safety Analysis.

This webinar will describe how transportation agencies can utilize a systemic approach to pedestrian safety by outlining its process and needs. A systemic approach, as opposed to a “hot-spot” approach, enables transportation agencies to identify, prioritize, and select appropriate countermeasures for locations with a high risk of pedestrian-related crashes. Presenters will discuss how some jurisdictions have begun to collect and analyze data types, how they have dealt with constraints, and how they have incorporated systemic approaches into their safety programs. They will also share examples of databases, screening tools, and systemic prioritization processes.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar.  Sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
