Countermeasures for Traffic Signals and Pedestrians
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.
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
