NJLTAP Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian Workshop
- October 31
- 8:00 am–4:30 pm
Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise, and account for more than 16% of all traffic fatalities nationwide. New Jersey is a pedestrian safety focus state, meaning we have more pedestrian fatalities than the national average, at about 25%.
Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian is a Federal Highway Administration Every Day Counts initiative designed to provide an overview of the pedestrian safety crossing problem and provide resources for addressing it. The “Spectacular 7” safety treatments to address pedestrian safety crossing problems will be reviewed. These are:
- Rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs)
- Leading pedestrian intervals (LPIs)
- Crosswalk visibility enhancements
- Raised crosswalks
- Pedestrian crossing/refuge islands
- Pedestrian hybrid beacons
- Road diets
This is a full-day workshop with a group field exercise where participants will evaluate a nearby location for pedestrian safety and make recommendations for improvement if needed.
