Low-Cost Safety Improvements 2-Part Webinar Series
April 26, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 3:45 pm
This course introduces the safe system approach, complete streets, data driven safety analysis as they are integrated into a comprehensive presentation of low-cost, ready-to-use improvements that enhance the safety of roads and highways. It additionally provides background on the crash mitigation process including both conventional and systemic network screening. Various data sources to evaluate roadway safety are also discussed. A synthesis of countermeasures and their associated crash reduction factors as identified in either the CMF Clearinghouse or other relevant publications will be covered. Information on using the CMF Clearinghouse and how to evaluate various CMFs are discussed. Countermeasures for specific areas including roadway segments and curves, roadsides, unsignalized intersections and signalized intersections are covered. Through exercises, participants will learn how to analyze highway safety situations and apply appropriate countermeasures to those situations.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Summarize some data that defines roadway safety in the United States
- Discuss methods to identify locations of interest for safety improvement
- Apply what we’ve learned in real life case studies
- Describe/discuss some potential LCSIs for:
- Roadway Segments & Curves
- Unsignalized Intersections
- Signalized Intersections
