Nighttime Visibility for Safety

May 18, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Nighttime adds another dimension to intersection, roadway departure, and vulnerable road user safety. The nighttime fatality rate on the Nation’s roadways is three times higher than the daytime rate. Urban areas usually have streetlights near schools, parks, transit stops, sports complexes, and the like to help illuminate pedestrians, but what are other effective safety countermeasures, including for rural areas? Streetlights, although highly effective, can come at a price.

FHWA will host an Innovation Exchange Webinar with subject matter experts to discuss options for increasing nighttime safety. The discussion will include experts from FHWA, local agencies, and the National Park Service, to provide a perspective of nighttime safety in intentionally dark areas.

If you have questions about this upcoming webinar, please contact Karyn Vandervoort with FHWA’s Office of Federal Lands Highway at karyn.vandervoort@dot.gov.

No registration required.
