Introduction to Data-Driven Safety Analysis

When: Thursday, April 23,  2020, 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

Sponsored by the ITE Transportation Safety Council

Webinar Description:

Data-driven safety analysis (DDSA) employs newer, evidence-based models that provide state and local agencies with the means to quantify safety impacts similar to the way they do other impacts such as environmental effects and traffic operations. DDSA impacts how projects are planned and developed to analyze safety at the core of project decisions. Numerous agencies and states have either fully-adopted DDSA throughout planning and project development processes, or have made other significant advances in promulgating the use of systemic and predictive safety analysis tools and techniques. This webinar will introduce DDSA approaches and highlight benefits and jurisdiction experiences of using DDSA throughout the United States from federal, state, and consultant perspectives.
