Description:
Pedestrian mobility and safety is a critical element of our transportation system. Approximately 6,000 pedestrians were killed across the nation in 2016, including 169 in Pennsylvania. While safety for vehicles has improved through technology, pedestrian fatalities have risen by 27% over the last decade.

To facilitate better and safer pedestrian movement, FHWA has created the Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) initiative. The STEP program focuses on applying proven safety countermeasures for crosswalks, sidewalks, and other pedestrian facilities.

This webinar will:
• Review how pedestrians interact in our transportation system from a safety and mobility perspective
• Discuss the FHWA STEP and proven safety countermeasures
• Examine resources and methods to advance implementation of STEP countermeasures
