Implementing a Safe System Approach: A Playbook for State and Local Transportation Agencies (Webinar)
May 19, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
There is no single pathway toward achieving a Safe System and there is no recipe for implementation. Achieving a Safe System is a complex journey that requires strengthening all elements in the system by numerous stakeholders. Stakeholders across the transportation community are already acting to advance the Safe System approach by making decisions guided by the underlying Safe System principles. In this webinar, you will learn about strategies that state and local transportation agencies are implementing to advance the Safe System approach with focus on the Safe Roads and Safe Speed elements. The strategies are presented as a “playbook” intended to assist agencies by providing ideas and potential practices for Safe System implementation. Similar with a playbook for a football team, it is not necessary to run every play to achieve your winning objective. Also, selecting appropriate “plays” to run will depend on where your agency is located “on the field”.
Many agencies may already be undertaking many of the practices identified. Also, just like in a live game, agencies may need to “call an audible” and adjust a recommendation to fit the needs of their organization. Selecting appropriate plays for your agency depends upon multiple factors and considerations such as your agency’s goals, current policies, funding availability, and project development practices. No matter where your agency currently is on the Safe System implementation “journey”, there are always “next steps” that may be taken and this webinar is intended to assist your agency (team) as you look to navigate toward successful implementation of a Safe System.
