Many agencies have used road diets to create space for pedestrians and bicyclists while improving overall safety along a corridor. This presentation will provide participants with up-to-date knowledge on design considerations for these street transformations, as well as background information that can be used to justify lane reductions. Special attention will be given to research that has evaluated the effectiveness of road diets in decreasing crashes for both pedestrians and automobiles. Finally, participants will be presented with design tips for allocating space for all road users.
This Webinar is the seventh part in the Designing for Pedestrian Safety series. Content from the PBIC Designing for Pedestrian Safety Webinar series is drawn from the PBIC's in-person training focused on engineering solutions for pedestrian safety. The training is meant for engineers, planners, traffic safety and enforcement professionals, public health and injury prevention professionals, and decision-makers who are seeking ideas and solutions for making changes to the physical environment that improve safety for pedestrians.
