Description

We are tentatively planning to hold this event in an in-person format. If it is determined that we cannot do so safely in compliance with state and local guidelines, by limiting the number of participants, and by following social distancing guidelines, we will notify registrants of a cancellation or plans to offer in alternative format by no later than one week before the event.

Course Learning Objectives – After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the need for making roads safer
  • Separate safety myths from reality
  • Demonstrate how to “read the road”
  • Describe practical and low-cost countermeasures to improve safety, both on existing roads and during the design stage
  • Identify ways to plan, implement, and fund low-cost safety measures
  • Identify effective ways of encouraging communities to make their roads safer
