Designing for Pedestrians Safety 101 and 201

101: This 2-day course is intended to help state and local transportation professionals address pedestrian safety issues through design and engineering solutions. Modules introduce the principles of pedestrian safety design and provide information about proven countermeasures.

201: This course provides agencies with a closer look at pedestrian safety countermeasures and focus on details about their effectiveness and intended use. Agencies select modules in advance to build a course that is tailored to their needs and interests.

Designing for Bicyclist Safety

This 1-day course provides an introduction to bicycle safety design principles and provides planners and engineers with a foundation of knowledge needed to understand bicyclists’ needs and improve their safety through engineering and design strategies.

Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety

This 3-day course combines elements of the 2-day pedestrian-focused courses for a comprehensive examination of strategies to identify safety problems, develop plans, and implement solutions through engineering, policy, and behavioral interventions.

How to Develop a pedestrian Safety Action Plan

This 2-day course is designed to help agencies understand where to begin to address pedestrian safety issues and assist agencies in further enhancing their existing pedestrian programs and activities.

Complete Streets Implementation

This course provides agencies with a custom approach to improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety using a complete streets approach. The session can be tailored to focus on developing complete streets policies or plans, as well as implementation of existing policies.

Pedestrian Safety Action Plan Template Work
