Pedestrian Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System (PEDSAFE) Webinar

Originally Presented: September 4, 2013, 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern Time


First developed in 2004, PEDSAFE has recently undergone a full revision and update to reflect the latest research and best practices surrounding pedestrian safety design.

The tool features a comprehensive review of pedestrian safety research, detailed information about 49 countermeasures, and case studies highlighting success stories around the United States. In addition to these features, PEDSAFE is equipped with interactive countermeasure selection tools and matrices that can assist engineers and planners in understanding pedestrian safety issues and selecting the appropriate countermeasures to address safety concerns.

This webinar focused on each component of PEDSAFE, giving special attention to the newest features and innovative countermeasures, such as rectangular rapid flashing beacons, roundabouts, pedestrian hybrid beacons, and road diets. The panelists, who were involved in the development of the original guide and the updated version, set aside a portion of the presentation to respond to attendee questions.
