2005 APBP Professional Development Seminar Presentations

As part of the FHWA Office of Highway Safety project on How to Develop a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan, the project team helped to organize two half-day sessions at the APBP Professional Development Seminar, which was held on October 10 and 11, 2005 in Chicago, Illinois. State, local, and federal officials were asked to share information on successful programs and activities that have been used to improve pedestrian safety. The sessions were video-taped and the PowerPoint presentations were also obtained.

The presentations were intended to lead participants through the steps of an action plan, the goal of which would be to change the way the agency approaches pedestrian safety, and/or train their engineers and designers to provide pedestrian safety in their roadway design. Both sessions were chaired by Charlie Zegeer, director of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC). The first session addressed the subject of pedestrian crash data and how to analyze it. It started with an overview of the How-to Guide and of the importance of stakeholders in the development of a pedestrian safety plan. Speakers for the first session included:

The second session focused on developing countermeasures and obtaining funding for pedestrian safety improvements. Speakers included:

The video and Powerpoint presentations are given below. Note that this site is still under construction, and more will be added to this site in the coming weeks (including the instructor notes for the second half of presentations).
