Promising Practices to Manage Speed in Cities for Pedestrian Safety

by Leah Shahum | February 18, 2020 | in News, Safety Over Speed, Webinars

One thing is clear: To make meaningful advances toward Vision Zero and safe mobility for all, we must manage speed for safety. We know a lot already about what works, and we’re learning more as Vision Zero commitment grows worldwide. Now, it’s a matter of political will, community advocacy, and using the strategies that work to encourage safe speeds on our roads.

In this one-hour webinar, learn how research backs up strategies to manage speed for safety: ranging from specific design countermeasures to collaboration between local and state staff on flexibility in roadway design to changing regulations that govern speed-limit setting. Read the research supported by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. And this webinar features one of the report’s co-authors, Rebecca L. Sanders of Arizona State University, as well as practitioners from Seattle and Austin, sharing their on-the-ground experiences. (Teaser: These cities’ Vision Zero work is elevating managing speed from a Safe Systems approach… and seeing progress!)
