Several agencies are adopting Vision Zero. This presentation will focus on developing a Safety Plan and low-cost crash countermeasures towards Vision Zero. The first step is to develop a heat map of historical crashes to identify hot spots. The next step evaluates crash contributing factors and predominant crash trends. A safe system approach incorporates managing interactions of roadway, vehicles, multi-modes, and travel speeds. It promotes a system-wide safety strategy, design of forgiving roadways, and accommodates human error. This presentation will discuss using this safe system approach and predictive safety analysis to evaluate safety. It will include proven countermeasures to improve safety based on a combination of historical crashes and a safe system approach. This presentation will also discuss FHWA’s new safety programs and funding.
