Webinar Description:
The number of people struck and killed while walking reached yet another new high in 2020. More than 6,500 people were struck and killed while walking in 2020, an average of nearly 18 per day, and a 4.5 percent increase over 2019. This epidemic continues growing worse because many of our nation’s streets are dangerous by design, designed primarily to move cars quickly at the expense of keeping everyone safe. Although everyone is affected by dangerous street design in some way, this burden is not shared equally. Despite other changes, the pandemic perpetuated existing disparities in who is being killed at the highest rates: Black and Native Americans. To reverse these trends and save lives, we need to protect all users of the transportation system through our policies, programs, and funding, while prioritizing the safety of those who are most at risk. This webinar will present case studies on cities that are already implementing those strategies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recall how legacy designs promote unsafe conditions for the most vulnerable users of the roadway network.
  • Describe how to focus design objectives around a safety basis.
  • Recognize the keys to creating sustainable project implementations.
