Safety Performance Measures for Bicyclists and Pedestrians

December 14, 2017


Statistics compiled and released each year have shown a consistent rise in the number of pedestrians and bicyclists killed annually. Unfortunately, fatalities represent only a small share of those injured or involved in crashes, and additional performance measures are needed to gain a full understanding of the safety problem. During this webinar, Amy Schick (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and David Kopacz (Federal Highway Administration) will discuss safety performance measures for bicyclists and pedestrians involved in crashes with motor vehicles. They will describe reporting requirements and what they mean for State, regional and local transportation agencies.

Following their presentations, panelists will participate in a discussion period to answer questions from webinar attendees.
