Two new FHWA brochures and recordings of webinars
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Safety Office has developed materials to assist states, localities, and citizens in improving pedestrian and bicycle safety. Recently, the FHWA Safety Office produced two brochures that are available for free download. One is on the safety benefits of walkways, sidewalks, and paved shoulders; the other is on safety benefits of raised medians and pedestrian refuge areas.
In addition, the FHWA has placed recordings of past webinars in its Pedestrian Safety Focus States and Cities program online and available for download (see the section “Past Recorded Webinars” approximately half-way down the FHWA Safety webpage). The last webinar featured presentations on New York City’s Pedestrian Safety Study and Action Plan, and the State of California’s Pedestrian Safety Assessment Program.
