To Register: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/824575809760209409
The Federal Highway Administration just released "A Resident's Guide for Creating Safer Communities for Walking and Bicycling," a free guide offering step-by-step instructions for residents and community groups looking to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety, access, and comfort. This webinar offers an overview of the guide and will review how two communities used the principles outlined within it to make their communities more walkable and bikeable.

Bicycle Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System (BIKESAFE) Webinar
Thursday, February 19, 2015, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time
  
To register: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7552593013237777409
FHWA recently completed its update to the Bicycle Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System, commonly known as BIKESAFE, to reflect the latest research and best practices surrounding designs for bicycle safety.  This free webinar highlights many of BIKESAFE's newest features and innovative countermeasures. Presenters will discuss how practitioners can use BIKESAFE to analyze crashes and implement new treatments as well as how to identify options to improve bicycle safety. Furthermore, presenters will discuss many of the 46 proven engineering countermeasures detailed within BIKESAFE and how communities have successfully implemented them.

Speed Management for Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety
February 26, 2015, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST
To Register: http://www.nhi.fhwa.dot.gov/resources/webconference/web_conf_learner_reg.aspx?webconfid=28919.

Speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes, and according to NHTSA, is a contributing factor in 30 percent of all fatal crashes. It is a cross-cutting safety issue that impacts safety areas such as Roadway departure, Intersection, and pedestrian/bicycle safety. As the first of a series of webinars on speed management for improving the safety of all roadway users offered by FHWA, together with the member agencies of USDOT Speed Management Team, this webinar will highlight case studies and examples related to managing speed to improve the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.

Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operations, (Will Take Place in May. Check back for details): The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has developed a new guide that gives law enforcement and community partners advice, guidance, and promising practices for setting up and conducting effective pedestrian safety enforcement operations. Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operations: A How-To Guide offers detailed information about planning, conducting, and following up enforcement operations, as well as case studies highlighting successful programs from across the country. This session will include presentations and a discussion with the guide's authors and presentations from two-case study programs, introducing you to the guide and its findings and providing information about incorporating successful pedestrian safety strategies in your community.


Past Recorded Webinars


Free Planning for Pedestrian Safety Webinar Series:

Planning for Pedestrian Safety was presented as 7 FREE webinars. The recordings of the series can be viewed here: http://www.pedbikeinfo.org/training/webinars_PSAP.cfm. The webinar series is intended to help communities address pedestrian safety issues and initiate the steps to drafting a tailored pedestrian safety action plan. The following topics were addressed:


FREE Designing for Pedestrian Safety Webinar Series.

The FHWA Safety Office and the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) will offer an 8-part Webinar series intended to help communities address pedestrian safety issues through design and engineering solutions. Modeled after the FHWA's/PBIC's in-person training course "Designing for Pedestrian Safety," the free Webinars will cover topics ranging from sidewalk design to road diets.
