Forum : Pedestrian Safety
NTSB Conference Center, Washington, DC

PedestrianForum_Logo.jpgThe National Transportation Safety Board will hold a one-day forum to discuss ways to improve pedestrian safety. The NTSB Pedestrian Safety Forum will be held from 9 am – 5 pm ET on May 10, 2016 in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center located at 429 L’Enfant Plaza, S.W., Washington D.C.  Vice Chairman T. Bella Dinh-Zarr, PhD, MPH will chair the forum.

The forum will be organized around four panels, each addressing different aspects of pedestrian safety. The first panel will look at recent trends and underlying effects of the safety risks for walking across or along public roads, including efforts to quantify exposure of pedestrians to the risk of being struck by a moving vehicle and the data needed to develop effective pedestrian safety plans. The second panel will look at federal, state, and local urban planning and policy as it relates to pedestrian safety. The policy discussion will consider safety initiatives and the progress that has been made implementing Complete Streets. The third panel will consider highway design countermeasures to improve pedestrian safety, including infrastructure cost and funding. The fourth panel will consider vehicle-based solutions to improve pedestrian safety, including collision avoidance and vehicle-detection technology being deployed in current and future model vehicles.
