PBIC launches Designing for Pedestrian Safety Webinar series

This summer the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), a clearinghouse of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) housed within the UNC Highway Safety Research Center (HSRC), launched a new Webinar series entitled “Designing for Pedestrian Safety”. The Designing for Pedestrian Safety Webinar series is intended to help communities address pedestrian safety issues through design and engineering solutions. Modeled after the PBIC and FHWA in-person training courses, the new Webinar Series explores a variety of topics including road diets, intersection geometry and signalized intersections. Webinar presenters have included Charlie Zegeer, director of the PBIC and John LaPlante, director of engineering with T.Y. Lin International. The series consisted of eight parts, with each Webinar focusing in on a specific subject matter surrounding pedestrian safety.
