Are your Vision Zero efforts being stymied or slowed by engineering “standards”? Or are they “guidelines”? And what the heck is the difference and does it matter? Yes, it does, because far too often, seemingly simple requests for proven safety improvements — from narrowing travel lanes to adding separated bikeways to lowering city speed limits — hit a wall of resistance shrouded in technical-sounding (read: off-putting for the regular person) jargon. Join us to hear some tips on how to decipher the AASHTO and FHWA design guides and potentially even bust some myths blocking your Vision Zero safety efforts. You’ll quickly find out that Vision Zero concepts are nothing new. They’ve been supported in these design guidelines all along.
