Transportation practitioners can use a Safe System approach to enhance intersection safety for all road users.
Taking a Safe System approach means proactively designing the roadway or intersection features in a way that anticipates human errors and reduces risk of severe injury or death due to a crash.
A Safe System approach to intersection design can include strategies such as:
Minimizing and modifying conflict points
Reducing speed of vehicles
Improving visibility at intersections
Providing space and protection for pedestrians and bicyclists
