Improved PEDSAFE tool helps agencies STEP up Pedestrian Safety

The PEDSAFE (Pedestrian Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System) guidance document has been updated to be more interactive and usable to a wide range of decision-makers. Within PEDSAFE's Countermeasure Selection Tool, users can select Improve Safety at Uncontrolled Crossings. The tool then leads the user through a series of questions directly linked to the FHWA Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety at Uncontrolled Crossing Locations. The tool returns a list of countermeasures suitable to the roadway conditions specified by the user, and each countermeasure is linked to a page in PEDSAFE that includes details about typical costs, design considerations, and installation examples from across the U.S.
