Pedestrian Safety From Around the World

06/30/2010 – 06/30/2010

Web-based, USA

2:00 PM- 3:00 PM EST

Presented by:
Charlie Zegeer, director of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center at the UNC Highway Safety Research Center

In this presentation, Charlie Zegeer will discuss pedestrian safety from an international perspective. From China to Dubai to New York City to India, Charlie 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.
