Technical Assessment of State Pedestrian Safety Programs

Originally Presented: March 14, 2013, 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern Time


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) sponsored this webinar about technical assessments of state pedestrian safety programs, and the results of an assessment conducted in Florida.

During the assessment, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) organizes a team of pedestrian and highway safety experts that evaluate State pedestrian safety program activities based on NHTSA's Uniform Guidelines for State Highway Safety (No. 14, Pedestrian Safety). The team develops a consensus report that includes the current status of the State's pedestrian safety program and provides recommendations for improvement.

Come hear about the most recent State Pedestrian Safety Program Technical Assessment conducted in Florida.  Leah Walton (NHTSA) and Trenda McPherson (Florida Department of Transportation) led this session, and discussed the process involved in planning and implementing an Assessment, the Assessment Report and direct benefits to the Assessment process.
