FHWA Pedestrian Safety Strategic Plan
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently completed and published a Pedestrian Safety Strategic Plan. This is a 15-year plan for pedestrian safety research and technology transfer. The plan was developed to address pedestrian safety concerns and equip professionals and other stakeholders with proper knowledge, resources, and information needed to identify problems and implement solutions related to the roadway environment.
This plan will be of interest to engineers, planners, researchers, and practitioners, as well as city, state, and local agency officials, who have an interest in or responsibility for public safety. In addition to the plan itself, there is a background report, which provides the knowledge base behind the Strategic Plan and documents the activities and findings of the project that support the development of the Plan.
