Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Tools

Pedestrian and Bicycle Crash Analysis Tool (PBCAT)
PBCAT is a software application designed to assist State and local pedestrian and bicycle coordinators, planners, and engineers address pedestrian and bicyclist crash problems. PBCAT helps users create a database of details associated with crashes between motor vehicles and pedestrians or bicyclists, analyze the data, produce reports, and select countermeasures to address problems identified.

Pedestrian Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System (PEDSAFE)
PEDSAFE provides practitioners with the latest information available for improving the safety and mobility of those who walk. This online tool gives users a list of possible engineering, education, and/or enforcement treatments to improve pedestrian safety and/or mobility based on user input about a specific location.

Bicycle Countermeasure Selection System (BIKESAFE)
BIKESAFE provides practitioners with the latest information available for improving the safety and mobility of those who bicycle. BIKESAFE's resources include an overview of bicycling in today's transportation system and information about bicycle crash factors and analysis and selecting and implementing bicycling improvements. BIKESAFE's tools allow users to select appropriate countermeasures or treatments to address specific bicycling objectives or crash problems.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Geographic Information System (GIS) Safety Tools
GIS software turns statistical data (such as accidents) and geographic data (such as roads and crash locations) into meaningful information for spatial analysis and mapping. In this suite of tools, GIS-based analytical techniques have been applied to a series of pedestrian and bicycle safety issues, including safe routes for walking to school, selection of streets for bicycle routes, and high pedestrian crash zones. Users downloading these tools must meet minimum GIS software requirements.
