Description

About 65 percent of all crashes in urban areas and 40 percent of those in rural areas occur at or near intersections or driveways. Safety improvements at these locations have always been a priority and pose a challenge for most transportation agencies in California. Because crashes are typically complex events, a great diversity of mitigation measures have been tried with varying degrees of success, including the modern round-about. This workshop offers a range of guidelines, solutions, and strategies for reducing conflicts and crashes at intersection locations. Safety improvements appropriate for both urban and rural areas are explored.

Topics Include

  • Why Intersection Management is Important
  • Safety Aspects of Signalized Intersections
  • Reducing Collisions at High Crash Signalized Intersections
  • The Modern Roundabout as a Signal Alternative
  • Safety of Non-Signalized Intersections
  • Innovative Designs for Improving Intersection Safety and Capacity
  • Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety at Signalized Intersections
  • Sources of intersection conflict and collisions
  • Good practices at signalized and non-signalized intersections
  • Land use designs to reduce collisions
  • Good access management practices

What you will learn

Students will obtain a rich set of information to help them select appropriate safety improvement options and make better decisions about how to reduce collisions at all types of intersections.

Who should attend

This course is intended for planners, engineers, and public safety personnel in municipal, county, and state agencies with responsibility for reducing traffic collisions.
