Part 1 of 9 of the “STEP: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian – How Florida is Implementing STEP” Florida LTAP webinar that aired on April 24, 2019.

Crosswalk visibility enhancements, such as crosswalk lighting and enhanced signage and markings, help drivers detect pedestrians––particularly at night.

Speaker(s): Gevin McDaniel and Alan El-Urfali, FDOT

Length: 16 minutes and 46 seconds

Raised crosswalks can serve as a traffic-calming measure and reduce vehicle speeds.

Speaker(s): DeWayne Carver, FDOT

Length: 3 minutes and 56 seconds

Part 3 of 9 of the “STEP: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian – How Florida is Implementing STEP” Florida LTAP webinar that aired on April 24, 2019.

Pedestrian crossing/refuge islands allow pedestrians a safer place to stop at the midpoint of the roadway before crossing the remaining distance. This is particularly helpful for pedestrians with limited mobility.

Speaker(s): Mary O’Brien, FDOT

Length: 4 minutes and 23 seconds

Part 4 of 9 of the “STEP: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian – How Florida is Implementing STEP” Florida LTAP webinar that aired on April 24, 2019.

Rectangular rapid-flashing beacons (RRFBs) are active (user-actuated) or passive (automated detection) amber LEDs that use an irregular flash pattern at mid-block or uncontrolled crossing locations. They significantly increase driver yielding behavior.

Speaker(s): Alan El-Urfali, FDOT

Length: 3 minutes and 10 seconds

Part 5 of 9 of the “STEP: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian – How Florida is Implementing STEP” Florida LTAP webinar that aired on April 24, 2019.

Pedestrian hybrid beacons (PHBs) provide positive stop control for higher-speed, multilane roadways with high vehicular volumes. The PHB is an intermediate option between a flashing beacon and a full pedestrian signal.

Speaker(s): Alan El-Urfali, FDOT

Length: 3 minutes and 22 seconds

Part 6 of 9 of the “STEP: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian – How Florida is Implementing STEP” Florida LTAP webinar that aired on April 24, 2019.

Road Diets can reduce vehicle speeds and the number of lanes pedestrians cross, and they can create space to add new pedestrian facilities such as pedestrian crossing/refuge islands.

Speaker(s): Maria Overton, FDOT

Length: 6 minutes and 39 seconds

Part 7 of 9 of the “STEP: Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian – How Florida is Implementing STEP” Florida LTAP webinar that aired on April 24, 2019.

Leading pedestrian intervals (LPIs) at signalized intersections allow pedestrians to walk, usually 3 to 4 seconds, before vehicles get a green signal to turn left or right. The LPI increases visibility, reduces conflicts, and improves yielding.

Speaker(s): Alan El-Urfali, FDOT

Length: 3 minutes and 47 seconds
