Recent Webinar: What Does It Take To Get Drivers To Yield: Engineering Measures That Work

Topic

One of the greatest challenges for many schools and neighborhoods is finding the appropriate measures to slow traffic in the areas where pedestrians cross the street. Which devices will be most effective? What are the costs? What are the maintenance requirements? Are there liability issues?

In this 60-minute webinar, engineering experts share their extensive knowledge and understanding of pedestrian safety and traffic control devices to address these questions. They discuss innovative devices and the latest research on design effectiveness, standard devices and appropriate use.

Presenters

Mike Cynecki, Traffic Engineering Supervisor for the Phoenix Street Transportation Department
