Webinar: The Culture of Vision Zero in Sweden
Date: December 12, 2017
Time: 9:00 am to 10:30 am MT/11:00 am to 12:30 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: National Center for Rural Road Safety

Vision Zero describes a road safety approach that focuses on eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries. There is growing interest in this approach, both in the U.S. and internationally. This webinar will provide an overview of Vision Zero implementation efforts in Sweden.

Sweden has a long tradition of systematic road safety work, of considering road traffic injuries as a public health problem, and of addressing these issues at the national government level. In October 1997, the Swedish Parliament formally adopted Vision Zero as a new long-term goal and direction in road traffic safety work. Vision Zero aims influence road safety work at all levels: guiding direct efforts to make the infrastructure safer, as well as indirectly influencing the institutional preconditions and approaches (culture) that encourage ongoing action by stakeholders to increase the safety of the road transport system. Vision Zero differs from a more traditional road safety policy with regard to problem formulation, its view on responsibility, its requirements for the safety of road users, and the ultimate objective of road safety work. This presentation will provide an overview of the tenets of Vision Zero, summarize the implementation efforts in Sweden, and discuss potential relevance to U.S. efforts.

Organization: Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP)

There is a paradigm shift going on in The Netherlands. New vehicles are fighting for their place on the streets, cycle lanes are overflowing, pedestrians are undervalued. To cope with these pressures, it is important to re-evaluate the importance of place, and the role of specific streets in the wider network. This new approach includes a new way of thinking about traffic safety and the value of place. The shift in rationale from a transport focused to a place focused approach seems to have better outcomes for both transport and place functions of the street. This study can be adapted to fit the North American context.

Time: 9:00 am to 10:30 am MT/11:00 am to 12:30 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) consists of a planned and coordinated multidisciplinary approach to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible. Effective TIM strategies reduce the duration and impacts of traffic incidents and improve the safety of motorists, crash victims, and emergency responders.

The webinar is a follow-up to the information presented in the June 2017 T3, which covered Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) TIM updates, examined the technology used for the investigation and reconstruction of traffic crashes, and provided information about each technology's capabilities and limitations to inform crash investigation units of available options.

The webinar examines FHWA's utilization of the Traffic Incident Management Capability Maturity Self-Assessment (TIM CM SA) for the past 15 years to evaluate the state of the practice in TIM across the country. Originally developed by FHWA in 2002, the TIM CM SA is utilized by State and local TIM program managers to annually benchmark and evaluate TIM program success and areas of improvement.

The final half of the webinar presents how Maryland State Highway (MSH) uses Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) to improve TIM. Additionally, the webinar will demonstrate the specific application of connected vehicle (CV) technologies to TIM and offers recommendations for ensuring that incident responders are actively engaged in the CV deployment process.

Cost: Free
Organization: National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE), Transportation Research Board (TRB)
 
Regional Transportation System Management and Operations (TSMO), is a committee of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) that considers transportation systems management and operations in a regional context. The committee focuses on sharing regional approaches to transportation problems by identifying research opportunities, creating knowledge, and disseminating information.

TSMO refers to multimodal transportation strategies to maximize the efficiency, safety, and utility of existing and planned transportation infrastructure. Strategies include, but are not limited to:
  • Traffic incident management,
  • Traffic signal coordination,
  • Freeway management,
  • Transit signal priority (TSP),
  • Bus rapid transit (BRT),
  • Freight management,
  • Work zone management,
  • Special event management, and
  • Road weather management.
TSMO initiatives have gained a lot of momentum recently mostly due to the industry realizing that a cultural shift is required to meet the growing demand on our transportation resources - a culture shift that is more operations centric, and requires updates to institutional business processes and architectures to operate and manage the transportation system focusing on customer service through improved system performance.

The Regional TSMO Subcommittee on Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) advances research and dialogue to address the inter-jurisdictional aspects of the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles, for the benefit of the transportation industry and to more effectively realize the safety and mobility benefits of modern transportation technology.

Training: Safer Roads By Design: Road Safety Audit
Date: February 26-28, 2018
Location: Alexandria, VA
Organization: International Road Federation (IRF)

Preventive risk assessment tools, such as road safety audits and inspections, are an effective and essential instrument to help road authorities reduce the number of crashes and casualties.

Risk assessment procedures can typically be applied at successive stages of road planning, design, opening and operations. They all serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they help network road operators and city traffic departments identify engineering weaknesses and hazardous road sections, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data.

In 2015, 82.5% of countries worldwide reported implementing one or more of these procedures, yet over 70% of roads surveyed by the International Road Assessment Program are rated under 2 Stars in a 5 Star Rating System across at least one user category. These figures suggest a startling disconnect between the theoretical merits of road infrastructure safety management and the actual results experienced by countless road users every day.

As a global leader in road safety, the International Road Federation (IRF) is well positioned to present state of the art methodologies and cutting edge technologies that have been field tested to reduce traffic injury risk through auditing & inspections. Workshop attendees will receive the necessary theoretical background and applied practices, with specific application to the roads and highways of roads, to ensure their risk identification programs are effective and impactful.
