Pedestrian Safety (3 credit hours/3 HSW Hours)
This course discusses the issue of pedestrian safety as it relates to traffic studies and plan design.  A background of the pedestrian safety problem is discussed.
 
An understanding of pedestrian characteristics and transportation design and policy elements that impact pedestrian safety are covered.  Design for pedestrian safety is discussed as it relates to street design, street connectivity, site design, land use and access management.  Methods to improve pedestrian safety are provided.
 
Collection data to identify pedestrian safety problems is outlined as it relates to types of safety projects and the information necessary to identify and quantify pedestrian safety deficiencies.
 
Analyzing the information and prioritizing the concerns is an important issue.  Identifying high crash locations, corridors, targeted areas and jurisdiction is key to determining possible solutions.  Crash typing is covered in order to select appropriate solutions.  A ranking system is then produced to prioritize the solutions for implementation.
 
Safety solutions must take into account design specifications and guidelines.  Engineering, enforcement and educational solutions can all be used in policy and planning solutions.  After implementation, these solution should be monitored to make sure they have a positive effect.
