An Overview of FHWA’s Proven Safety Countermeasures

May 10, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This course will provide participants with an overview of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Proven Safety Countermeasures. Attendees will also hear from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) about how these countermeasures are being applied throughout the state.

FHWA’s Proven Safety Countermeasures initiative (PSCi) is a collection of 28 countermeasures and strategies effective in reducing roadway fatalities and serious injuries on our Nation’s highways. Transportation agencies are strongly encouraged to consider widespread implementation of PSCs to accelerate the achievement of local, State, and National safety goals. These strategies are designed for all road users and all kinds of roads—from rural to urban, from high-volume freeways to less traveled two-lane State and county roads, from signalized crossings to horizontal curves, and everything in between. Each countermeasure addresses at least one safety focus area – speed management, intersections, roadway departures, or pedestrians/bicyclists – while others are crosscutting strategies that address multiple safety focus areas.

The course will cover the following topics:
• An introduction to each of the FHWA Proven Safety Countermeasures
• The applications of each countermeasure
• The context in which each countermeasure can be applied
• The safety benefits of each countermeasure
