Designing for Pedestrian Safety 201 (DPS 201)


DPS201 provides participants with an overall understanding of how planning, design and engineering influences pedestrian safety. It provides an introduction to the principles and countermeasures to reduce crashes. DPS201 goes into more detail of various countermeasures presented in the DPS101. It will help those planning, designing, or engineering projects to better understand the details for implementing specific countermeasures. There is a saying we use - “Right Design Invites Right Use”. This workshop will allow participants to ask all the tough questions regarding the countermeasures available, but also may provide instruction and discussion on things participants may not have considered. As the saying goes, “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
