Webinar: Selection of Pedestrian Treatments at Unsignalized Crossings
Presented by Charlie Zegeer, Director, PBIC, and Associate Director of Engineering and Planning, UNC Highway Safety Research Center. Hosted by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.
This Livable Communities Webinar focuses on the various treatment options to improve pedestrian safety at unsignalized intersections and midblock locations. Charlie Zegeer provides guidance for making decisions in selecting such treatments as marked crosswalks, signing, raised median islands, road diets (lane reductions), rapid-flash beacons, HAWK signals, the addition of traditional traffic and pedestrian signals, and other measures.
