Upcoming webinar: Pedestrian Safety From Around the World
Upcoming webinar: Pedestrian safety from around the world
In this presentation -- one in the series of webinars offered by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) -- Charlie Zegeer will discuss pedestrian safety from an international perspective. From China to Dubai to New York City to India, Mr. Zegeer will lead us on a quick tour of pedestrian safety design and treatments from around the globe.
Beginning with pedestrian safety statistics at the global and regional level, the presentation will uncover relationships between design, engineering treatments, and pedestrian safety and establish the basic principles that guide and inform these relationships. Charlie will also present a selection of results from the International Scan on Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety and Mobility, which examined pedestrian safety treatments at a number of locations throughout the world. He will also describe a case study from Miami-Dade County, Florida, regarding safety benefits that can potentially result from a comprehensive pedestrian safety program.
The webinar is free and takes place Wednesday, June 30, 2010 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. CDT. Registration is available online.
