Statewide Action Plans for Bicyclist and Pedestrian Safety
Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Action Plans are valuable tools that can help transportation agencies establish a framework and approach for reducing deaths and injuries among vulnerable road users. The Federal Highway Administration developed How to Develop a Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Action Plan to help guide agencies through the steps required to develop their own action plans for improving safety. During this webinar, authors of this guide will review the elements of successful Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Action Plans and describe how Departments of Transportation (DOTs) at the state level can develop their own plans. Panelists from Virginia and Oregon will describe their approaches to crafting and implementing their plans and offer lessons for the audience.
Participants from State agencies are also invited to participate in a virtual peer-to-peer event (on April 14, from 1:00 to 3:00 Eastern Time) to discuss safety action plan development with other State agencies and representatives from the Federal Highway Administration. This session will be largely discussion-based and intended to support agencies in the process of developing their own action plans. Please indicate your interest when you register for the webinar.
This webinar will be delivered by VHB and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center through a contract to provide training and technical assistance to the FHWA-designated Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Focus States and Cities.
