Workshop
Wesley Kumfer, UNC Highway Safety Research Center, presiding
Rebecca Naumann, presiding
Laura Sandt, UNC Highway Safety Research Center, presiding
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Pedestrians (ANF10)

Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise, even as other modes have experienced safety gains. This workshop will address systems failures that increase risk and will equip attendees with evidence-based tools. Attendees will be able to:

  • Describe at least two ways some solutions fail within a systems context.
  • Participate in activities to build systems-thinking skills that can be readily applied by researchers and practitioners.
  • Identify best practices for finding policy levers and effective solutions.
