Roundabout Works II | The Roundabout Way to Vision Zero via the Safe System Approach

 

With a recent increase in traffic-related crashes, more focus has been placed on Vision Zero programs and strategies – including an emphasis on the Safe System Approach.

Enhanced policies and grant programs, such as the US DOT’s ‘Safe Streets and Roads for All’, have been implemented to help agencies increase their success in achieving their Vision Zero goals. Improving safety at intersections is key to achieving this vision and roundabouts provide substantial safety benefits.

Join our panel discussion on how roundabouts can be the embodiment of applying the Safe System Approach to intersections. These leaders in the field will bring their expertise on roundabouts and discuss how roundabouts can be incorporated into the journey of Vision Zero.
