Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety and Mobility
This online engineering PDH course describes the findings of the team and presents its recommendations for U.S. practice. This course contains material that should be required knowledge for anyone concerned with pedestrian and bicyclist issues in the U.S.
Pedestrian and bicyclist deaths accounted for 14 percent of U.S. highway fatalities; for example, 14% in 2008. As a result, the FHWA's Office of Safety established pedestrian and bicyclist safety as one of its top priorities, and the FHWA, together with several agencies, sent a team of twelve U.S. pedestrian and bicyclist specialists to Europe to study European approaches to pedestrian and bicyclist safety and mobility. The countries visited (Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom) were chosen because of their innovative approaches to non-motorized transportation, as well as the potential transferability of their policies and practices.
This 5 PDH online course is intended primarily for traffic engineers interested in improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety and mobility.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the factors influencing pedestrian and bicyclist safety and mobility
- Learning about the engineering and design elements for pedestrians
- Learning about the engineering and design elements for bicyclists
- Learning about traffic safety education for children and adults
- Learning about enforcement elements
- Understanding the public policies that encourage bicycle use
- Learning the procedures for evaluating bicycle and pedestrian policies
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration document, FHWA-PL-10-010, "Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety and Mobility in Europe", February 2010.
