Overview

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2016 witnessed the most pedestrian fatalities since 1990, accounting for approximately 16 percent of all roadway fatalities (5,987). In 2016, 72% of pedestrian fatalities occurred away from intersections (e.g., mid-block locations) and approximately 26% occurred at intersections. This presentation will show how the EDC5 STEP (Every Day Counts 5 Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian) initiative can help agencies reduce the number of pedestrian fatalities by understanding how to utilize the Spectacular Seven, which are: Crosswalk Visibility Enhancements, Raised Crosswalks, Pedestrian Crossing/refuge islands, Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB), Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB), Road Diets and Leading Pedestrian Interval (LPI).
