This workshop shows participants ways to identify road safety issues, implement low-cost safety countermeasures, and reduce fatalities and injuries caused by road departures, collisions with fixed objects, and collision at intersections. The workshop also addresses measures to improve roadway and intersection safety for all road users, and provides examples of low-cost maintenance and safety improvements on roads.

The workshop stresses the importance of road safety, and illustrates how it can be integrated into local transportation construction, operations, and maintenance. Through practical exercises and facilitator-led discussions, the emphasis is on operations and maintenance to reflect the predominant, day-to-day responsibilities of local transportation agencies. The benefits of safety initiatives are shown.
