Latest Updates on ITE's Informational Report on Speed Humps and other Vertical Deflection Techniques
When: Thursday, October 20, 2022 | 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
This webinar is led by the ITE Traffic Engineering Council.
A Task Force of the Traffic Engineering Council updated the ITE Recommended Practice on Speed Humps and is near final publication of A Guide to Vertical Deflection Speed Reduction Techniques: Planning and Design of Speed Humps, Speed Tables and Other Related Measures. The update addresses numerous changes which will be highlighted in the webinar including:
- Moving beyond simply speed humps to a suite of vertical deflection techniques including speed tables, raised pedestrian crossings, raised intersection and fully mountable mini-roundabouts
- Evolving from transverse speed hump designs to cushion speed hump designs
- Updated dimensions and design characteristics
- Extensive data on before/after performance in reducing vehicle speeds and volume
- Greater definition to guide definition of a "speeding" or "volume" problem on neighborhood streets based on empirical data from prior agency actions to address these issues with vertical deflection
- New metrics for assessing speed, including focus on safety related measures that address excessive speeding (vehicles traveling 5 and 10 mph above properly posted speed limits) and uniformity of vehicles speeds (pace)
- Guidance on collecting speed data and specific input on the "bins" used to summarized speed distribution data
- Current signing and striping guidance
- Risk management case studies related to prior legal actions
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:
- List the changes and updates to ITE's Recommended Practice for speed humps, speed tables, raised intersections, raised pedestrian crossings and fully mountable mini-roundabouts as techniques for speed reduction
- Identify the best practices for application of vertical deflection techniques
- Define the current before and after data regarding performance of vertical deflection techniques
- State key design considerations for speed humps and other vertical deflection measures
- Describe current evaluation of impacts of vertical deflection on property values and risk management
- Randy McCourt, P.E., PTOE, Past ITE President | Portland, Oregon, United States
