FHWA Webinar on Pedestrian Fatalities in the U.S.
Over 50% more pedestrians were killed on U.S. road in 2021 than in 2010. As of 2019, 64% of all pedestrian traffic fatalities occurred on arterial roads. To help address the challenge of pedestrian safety on arterials, and reverse this upward trend, the FHWA is conducting a Global Benchmarking study on Reducing Pedestrian Fatalities and Serious Injuries through Planning and Application of Safety Strategies on Arterial Networks that will visit Australia and New Zealand in September ’22. As part of the study effort, the FHWA and the USDOT Volpe Center conducted a desk review in 2020 to examine noteworthy approaches and innovations used by international peer countries to achieve reductions in pedestrian fatalities (particularly when applied to arterial roadway systems).
This webinar will focus on the desk review findings, exploring each peer country’s approach to pedestrian safety across five categories to include design, policy, planning, technology, and data. In addition to sharing findings, the webinar will provide an opportunity for U.S. practitioners to provide input on areas for the study team to focus on and inquire about in preparation for the upcoming study visits.Register Here
