August 20: Safe Systems—What Does it Mean for Vision Zero?
In this one-hour webinar, we will examine the Safe Systems framework and how its core principles relate to Vision Zero programs and goals. We will share lessons learned from agencies across the U.S. and abroad in translating Safe Systems principles into actions and policies and address challenges, limitations, and opportunities for advancing Safe Systems in the Vision Zero context.
This webinar will feature Seth LaJeunesse, a Research Associate with University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, and Eric Dumbaugh, Ph.D., the Associate Director of the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety and an Associate Editor of the Journal of the American Planning Association. Eric’s work spans the domains of urban transportation, including planning, policy, engineering, and design. Seth evaluates behavioral interventions designed to enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety and access, and designs studies that draw from psychology, sociology, and systems science.
This is the first in a two-part webinar series on systems approaches to reduce roadway fatalities; the second webinar in the series is planned for the fall and will share insights from the Safe Systems Summit on systems tools to address complex issues. The webinars are co-sponsored by the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety, a national University Transportation Center.
