Upcoming webinar: How to get drivers to yield to pedestrians
One of the greatest challenges for many schools and neighborhoods is finding the appropriate measures to slow traffic in the areas where pedestrians cross the street. Which devices or engineering measures are most effective? What are the costs? What are the maintenance requirements? Are there liability issues? In the webinar “What does it take to get drivers to yield: Engineering Measures that Work,” scheduled for Tuesday, March 30 p.m. from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. CDT, engineering experts Charlie Zegeer and Mike Cynecki will share their extensive knowledge and understanding of pedestrian safety and traffic control devices to address these questions. They will discuss innovative tools and the latest research on their effectiveness as well as more standard devices and their appropriate use.
The webinar is part of the Safe Routes Coaching Action Network Webinar series, developed by America Walks and the National Center for Safe Routes to School.
