Course Description:

This course will introduce how to improve safety by developing and implementing an action plan. We will discuss local road safety plans, an FHWA proven safety countermeasure local agencies can use to identify at-risk locations on their roadways and deploy cost-effective safety solutions. Participants learn how to implement safety improvements targeted at areas that have a history of crashes or exhibit conditions associated with high-crash areas. Participants will learn the steps to develop and implement a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) for their community. The Safe System Approach to safety will be introduced.

  • Learn about developing local road safety plans (LRSP) for their agencies
  • Learn about the implementation, evaluation, and updates for LRSP
  • Introduction to FHWA and NHTSA safety countermeasures
