Countermeasures for Traffic Signals and Pedestrians

COURSE NO: C01-024
Countermeasures for Traffic Signals and Pedestrians
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the Federal Highway Administration’s Safety Countermeasures for preventing Traffic Signal-related and Pedestrian crashes.


Estimates are discussed regarding the crash reduction expected if various countermeasures are implemented with respect to traffic signals and pedestrian crashes. The estimates are presented as Crash Reduction Factors (CRFs).  Traffic engineers and other transportation professionals can use the information contained in this course when asking the following types of question: Which countermeasures might be considered at the signalized intersection of Maple and Elm Streets, an intersection that is experiencing a high number of crashes? What changes in the number of crashes are possible with the various countermeasures for traffic signals? Similarly, which countermeasures might be considered at the signalized intersection of Oak and Pine Streets, an intersection experiencing a high number of pedestrian crashes? What change in the number of pedestrian crashes can be expected with the implementation of the various countermeasures for pedestrian crashes?


This 1 PDH online course is intended for traffic engineers and other transportation professionals concerned with safety issues related to traffic signals and pedestrians.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with “crash reduction factors”
  • Knowing, for traffic signals, CRFs for signal operations, signal hardware, and combination signal and other countermeasures
  • Knowing, for pedestrian crashes, CRFs for signalization countermeasures, geometric countermeasures, and signs/markings/operational countermeasures
  • Understanding the purpose, warrants for signal installation, advantages, and disadvantages of traffic signals
  • Recognizing signal improvements that may decrease crashes
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled “Countermeasures for Traffic Signals and Pedestrians”, which is based on two documents published by the U.S. Department of Transportation FHWA: the first document is titled “Traffic Signals”, publication number FHWA-SA-10-005, dated November 2009 and the second document is titled “Toolbox of Countermeasures and Their Potential Effectiveness for Pedestrian Crashes”, publication number FHWA-SA-014, dated May 2008.

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit. The quiz will be based on the entire document.
The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.
Certificate of Completion

Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
