Webinar on pedestrian safety and accessibility at modern roundabouts
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is offering a free webinar on pedestrian safety and accessibility considerations at modern roundabouts. Modern roundabouts are an FHWA proven safety countermeasure and have been documented to reduce vehicle injury and fatal crashes when compared to signalized intersections. However, the safety of roundabouts for pedestrians is less clear, and significant concerns about the accessibility and safety of roundabouts for pedestrians who are blind have often been raised.
This webinar will take place tomorrow, Wednesday, March 7, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. CT. Register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/941771786.
