Achieving Safety Results by Addressing Behavioral Issues 

The National Center for Rural Road Safety (Safety Center) is hosting a FREE, 1.5-hour online webinar.              

Webinar Description
Rural transportation agencies are increasingly addressing safety in their planning areas and at a minimum, have usually adopted the State’s zero deaths concept to frame their transportation safety activities. To achieve this vision, planners identify infrastructure solutions, but behavioral concerns, such as distraction, impairment, and unbelted drivers/occupants are also major issues in rural regions. This session will provide participants with information and resources on the role they can play to drive down fatalities and serious injuries through collaboration across the 4E’s, behavioral funding sources, and education campaigns. 

Webinar Outcomes
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the role regional transportation planners can play in behavioral safety
  • Identify data-driven behavioral safety priorities
  • Engage in behavioral safety activities and understand funding resources

Target Audience
This training is directed toward regional transportation planners and highway safety office staff, but law enforcement, engineers, and educators would also benefit from the presentation. Participants should have some basic familiarity with transportation safety.

Course Presenters 

Nicole Waldheim, Associate, Cambridge Systematics

  • Nicole leads the transportation safety planning practice at CS. She has worked on numerous planning and research efforts to assist regional and local transportation agencies develop data-driven safety plans as well as integrate safety into their transportation planning processes. She authored portions of the FHWA publication, Building Links to Improve Safety: How Safety and Transportation Planning Practitioners Work Together which discusses, in part, how transportation planners and highway safety office staff can coordinate on behavioral safety.
