Event: Thanksgiving Holiday Travel
Date: November 21-26, 2018
Organization: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit the roads, eager to spend time with family and friends. It's one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes.

During the 2016 Thanksgiving weekend (6 p.m. Wednesday, November 23, to 5:59 a.m. Monday, November 28), 341 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes nationwide. Tragically, 49% of those killed were not buckled up, representing an increase in seat belt use compared to the same weekend in 2015, when 52% of those killed in traffic crashes were unrestrained.

Nighttime proved even more deadly, with 55% of Thanksgiving weekend crashes occurring at night. Much like drunk driving, these deaths represent needless tragedies for families across America. These deaths could have been completely prevented with the simple click of a seat belt. Research shows that wearing a seat belt is one of the simplest things you can do to stay safe when you're traveling in a vehicle, especially during busy travel periods like Thanksgiving .

Webinars

Webinar: Work Zone Risk Management: Lessons Learned
Date: September 27, 2018
Time: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm MT/3:00 pm to 4:30 pm ET
Cost: $199
Organization: Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE)

It has been said that nationally about half of all traffic-related law suits are due to crashes that occur in work zones. Public agencies, consultants, and contractors are faced with significant exposure to risk of such law suits. Better managing this risk can result in safer transportation facilities, fewer deaths and injuries, and reduced exposure to law suits. 

Concern about potential liability can affect safety decisions by directing attention to road treatments that are assumed to be helpful to litigation efforts but may have little safety benefit. The inappropriate use of traffic control devices not only diverts safety resources but can increase the traffic crash risk by placing unnecessary fixed obstacles near the roadway.

Webinar: Improving Pedestrian Crossing Safety at Uncontrolled Locations
Date: October 4, 2018
Time: 10:00 am to 11:30 am MT/12:00 pm to 1:30 pm ET
Cost: $99 members/$159 non-members
Organization: American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

In recent years there has been an increased emphasis on improving pedestrian safety. Improving pedestrian safety extends to areas typically seen as being non-pedestrian-friendly, such as high speed and wide roadways. With traffic conditions changing as traffic volumes and congestion increases, the pedestrians' ability to safely cross many roadways is affected. Recent developments in geometric design features, traffic control devices, and technologies may improve pedestrian safety and access by addressing specific problems associated with roadway crossings. Although numerous treatments exist at unsignalized crossings, there is growing concern about their effectiveness. Thus, there is a need to identify and study selected treatments to determine their effectiveness.

A recent research project jointly sponsored by TCRP and NCHRP was initiated to address this particular need. The research was conducted by the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI). The study had two main objectives: (1) to recommend selected engineering treatments to improve safety for pedestrians crossing high-volume, high-speed roadways at unsignalized intersections, in particular those served by public transportation; and (2) to recommend modifications to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) pedestrian traffic signal warrant. The research team developed and published a final report entitled Improving Pedestrian Safety at Unsignalized Crossings, NCHRP Report 562. Guidelines for use in selecting pedestrian crossing treatments for unsignalized intersections and mid-block locations is included in the report as Appendix A. A summary of this report will be presented during this webinar.

Time: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm MT/1:00 pm to 2:30 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC)

The FHWA Office of Safety will soon publish the Guide for Scalable Risk Assessment Methods for Pedestrians and Bicyclists (Report No. FHWA-SA-18-032), which details risk assessment and exposure estimation approaches at several different geographic scales. This guide outlines eight sequential steps to develop risk values, and describes the scope and nature of each step, including any guiding principles. Practitioners can use these scalable risk assessment methods, as well as an online spreadsheet tool, to evaluate pedestrian and bicyclist risk at different geographic scales to inform program and project funding decisions.  

This webinar will provide an overview of these scalable risk assessment methods for pedestrians and bicyclists. Exposure is an integral element of risk, and the webinar will outline and describe three basic exposure estimation approaches for pedestrians and bicyclists: 1) site counts; 2) travel demand estimation models (several different types); and, 3) travel surveys. Panelists from the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI), University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will share the new guidance and spend time responding to discussion questions from attendees.

Webinar: Proactively Addressing Crash Risk with Systemic Safety Analysis
Date: October 11, 2018
Time: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm MT/1:00 pm to 2:30 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC)

Analyzing safety risk for pedestrians and bicyclists has conventionally focused on crashes alone. But agencies interested in being more proactive about minimizing or eliminating risk are employing a systemic approach that takes a broader view of risk evaluation across an entire roadway system. A systemic approach acknowledges that crashes alone are not always sufficient to determine risk potential and appropriate countermeasures. Such an approach focuses on identifying a variety of roadway and environmental characteristics associated with crash risk and proactively implementing system wide safety improvements typically using lower cost engineering treatments.

This webinar will explore the fundamentals of a systemic approach to minimizing safety risk for pedestrians and bicyclists and highlight case studies from the City of Seattle and other agencies.

This webinar supports FHWA's  Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) program which promotes countermeasures at uncontrolled pedestrian crossings
