This QuickBite provides an overview of design elements that improve pedestrian safety at roundabouts. A series of case study examples are provided showing various design attributes and options with intended to improve driver yielding behavior.
This paper introduces cybersecurity tools and resources that are relevant and applicable to transportation - such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). A process is then discussed as to how the NIST CSF could be adapted to the planning and operations within transportation systems management and operations (TSMO).
These practices can reduce track-related bicycle crashes and should be considered for potential implementation, if possible, during the design development process for railroad grade crossing locations.
Two-way separated bicycle lanes can be challenging to implement due to the many conflicting movements involved. A gated railroad grade crossing requires particularly high levels of care in handling crossing movements. Adding bicycle movements outside of the vehicle space can greatly increase the complexity.
This technical brief summarizes the results of a recent survey that gathered knowledge on current traffic control sign, asset management practices to develop a better understanding of how to move forward in developing best practices which benefit agency asset management efforts, and CAV traffic control verification.
This ITE Informational report presents a series of case studies that demonstrate how public agencies have successfully implemented decorative crosswalks to meet their community’s desires for enhanced urban environments without sacrificing pedestrian safety.
This document considers opportunities to evolve and align the LRSP process with a more robust and holistic safety framework, embracing national and international best practice–the Safe System approach–to address our road safety crisis in the United States.
A bike runnel is a narrow channel on the edge of a stairway that helps dismounted cyclists negotiate stairs. This newly released ITE Quick Bite provides some tips when considering the implementation of bike runnels.
This Technical Brief provides a guide to help transportation professionals understand how to define and incorporate Big Data when scoping, implementing, and evaluating safety projects. Case studies of specific applications are included to illustrate real world examples of evaluating safety performance with Big Data.
ITE’s employer councils held a joint virtual “Town Hall” to brainstorm with the larger ITE community on the topic of “Staff Recruiting and Retention.” The three councils independently identified that staff leaving their organizations (whether in the public or private sectors) was a real and critical issue that needed to be understood immediately, and this document summarizes discussions from their unique perspectives.
Seeking answers for residential local street sidewalks? This is your resource! We conducted a survey to get answers to some basic questions and summarized what this may mean to you and your community.
ITE and the International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA) collaboratively prepared the Traffic Signal Maintenance Handbook, 2nd Edition to reflect the current state-of-the-practice and to provide the user with a broad overview of key considerations for the maintenance element of a traffic signal program. Available in both pdf and print.
This Recommended Practice is intended to replace the current Transportation Impact Analyses for Site Development Recommended Practice, under publication number RP-020D published September 2010. It provides key considerations for practitioners as well as new approaches for agencies to proactively plan for multimodal transportation when reviewing site developments.
This recommended practice reflects the current state-of-the-practice and provide the user with a broad overview of key considerations for vertical deflection measures as speed reduction techniques including speed humps, speed tables, raised pedestrian crossings, raised intersections, and traffic calming roundabouts.
The intent of this document is to provide guidance to agencies for the development of crosswalk policies. It seeks to improve consistency in crosswalk policy development with the goal of improving the safety and accessibility for some of our transportation system’s most vulnerable users.
