This session will focus on pedestrian crossings at intersections and mid-block crossings. According to the World Health Organization “More than one-fifth of the people killed on the world’s roads each year are not travelling in a car, on a motorcycle or even on a bicycle – they are pedestrians. Pedestrian deaths and injuries are often preventable, and proven interventions exist, yet in many locations pedestrian safety does not attract the attention it merits." Join IPE’s Road Specialist, Brian Anderson, to learn more about:

  • The issues faced by pedestrians when crossing a road.
  • Effective countermeasures that have been proven.
  • The process of implementing these countermeasures.
