Webinar

Making Vision Zero a Reality: Data-Driven Policy + Infrastructure Interventions for All

7/28/2022 – 3pm EST – 60 minutes

Join us for our webinar on July 28, 2022 at 3pm EST where we’ll be joined by policy leaders and subject matter experts to discuss how we can use the power of data to bring an end to the decades-long pedestrian safety crisis facing the United States. With a data and equity-driven approach, municipalities can make truly impactful interventions that will save lives and help our communities make Vision Zero a reality.

Cities across the country are seeing record-high pedestrian fatalities, making the U.S. one of the most dangerous countries for pedestrians and cyclists in the world. Thanks to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Safe Streets for All initiative, $5 billion in grants will be available for governments to plan and implement infrastructure improvements that will help prevent these tragedies and help localities reach their vision zero goals. 

A major challenge that decision-makers face is accessing reliable, recent, and accurate data to inform what policy and infrastructure investment will actually make an impact on their community.

What you’ll learn:

  • Pathways to securing Safe Streets for All funding
  • Examples of how data can be used to provide key elements of safety plan analysis such as which intersections in communities are the most dangerous, how and why people are traveling through their streets, and who is the most at-risk.
  • A technical demonstration of Replica data use in pedestrian safety prioritization studies, bike and pedestrian forecasting and new investment analysis

Who should attend:

Public Agencies & Planning Firms Vision Zero Advocates, & Community Groups.
