Law Enforcement Strategies to Improve Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety
Wednesday, May 20th, 2-3pm, EcoCentre Boardroom
Effective law enforcement is a key factor in ensuring that pedestrians and cyclists have safe, equitable access to the public right-of-way. Attend this webinar to learn about law enforcement programs that raise awareness of traffic safety, shape behavior, and improve safety for vulnerable users.
This session focuses on three approaches to law enforcement:
- Seattle’s data-driven SeaStat program, a collaboration between Seattle’s DOT and Police Department that identifies hot spots and dangerous behavior through collision record analysis and speed and traffic volume data.
- Seattle’s School Zone Safety Photo Enforcement Program, which measures success by the reduction in speeds and violations. Revenue from the speed cameras goes into safety improvements around schools.
- Behavior change brought about by programs focused on education and positive interactions between law enforcement officers, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
