Reduce pedestrian crashes on urban arterials and local roadways.
Countermeasures for strategy 2 were identified in the following categories.
Use leading or exclusive pedestrian intervals at signalized intersections (i.e., pedestrian walk signals activate prior to parallel green), high-volume pedestrian-use signaled intersections, and pedestrian push-button locations.
Disseminate information and training on the effectiveness and appropriateness of pedestrian traffic control measures.
Disseminate information on the connection between urban form (driveway density, setbacks, pedestrian scale, frontage road design speeds, etc.) and safety outcomes. Encourage incorporation into local land use planning and review.
