Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP)


Pedestrians account for over 17.5 percent of all fatalities in motor vehicle crashes and the majority of these deaths occur at mid-block and uncontrolled intersections. Inadequate pedestrian crossing facilities and insufficient or inconvenient crossing opportunities create barriers to safe, convenient and complete pedestrian networks. Expecting pedestrians to travel significantly out of their way to reach their destination is unrealistic. By focusing on uncontrolled locations, agencies can improve the quality of life for pedestrians of all ages and abilities.

Who Should Attend
This class is designed for any local or state transportation or public safety professionals involved in making decisions regarding the safety of their road systems. Engineers, Public Works Directors, Highway Supervisors, Planners, Legal Traffic Authorities (LTA's) and law enforcement personnel are encouraged to attend.

Participants will receive 6 credit hours toward their CT Safety Champion designation.
