Dangerous by Design and the Governors Highway Safety Association Pedestrian Traffic Fatalities by State reports oversimplify the causes of crashes involving pedestrians. This session will inform attendees about the crash data sources available (D5TransPed, Route Condition Tool, SSOGIS, Signal 4 Analytics, FDOT Pedestrian Crash Typing, Bicycle Pedestrian Safety Action Plan) so that solutions can be crafted for the complex reality of pedestrian vulnerabilities. Mitigations by Engineering (Complete Streets, Safe Routes to School, International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona Beach, RRFBs, and Hawks), Enforcement (High Visibility Enforcement and stings), and Education (Alert Today Alive Tomorrow campaigns and walking school bus) will be shared.

This session is meant to inform planners about strategies being used to finance bike/ped projects, their potential pitfalls, and tips.

This session is meant to take research based on the interviews of multiple planners across the state and give the results back to those who can use it.

This session specifically wants to inform about bike/ped financing that may help cities expand their bike/ped options.

Bike/ped financing often works in a silo, only informed by contacts. This session addresses trends and options from around the nation.
