Details

Road safety professionals are invited to a TRB webinar on Monday, November 25, 2019, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM ET. The webinar will provide an overview of the safe system approach for road design by addressing road user needs, especially for vulnerable users. Crashes on roadways are a leading cause of death and injuries globally. While many higher income countries have made significant steps towards improved safety performance outcomes, lower- and middle-income countries have not been as successful. The webinar will discuss the updates to the Word Road Association (PIARC) road safety manual, describe national road strategies, and identify limitations on the road. The presenters will also draw on their international expertise to discuss how these topics may lead to a safer road system.

This webinar was organized with the cooperation of PIARC, in conjunction with the TRB Standing Committees on Highway Safety Performance and Transportation Safety Management.

There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
