The Designing for Pedestrian Safety course is intended to help state and local transportation planning professionals address pedestrian safety issues through design and engineering solutions. The training course includes a field exercise in the application of the principles, concepts, and strategies covered in the course. Also the participants will share and prioritize potential policies, programs, and strategies.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the influence of planning factors: land use, street connectivity, access management, site design, and level of service.
- Describe how pedestrians should be considered and provided for during the planning, design, work zone, maintenance, and operations phases.
- Describe how human behavior affects the interaction between pedestrians and drivers
- Identify good practices and effective solutions to enhance pedestrian safety and accessibility.
