safety planning

Inspired by a SlideShare Chris Hedden, Dan Krechmer and Ron Basile created last year, The Top Five Things Planners Need to Know About Self-Driving Vehicles, Ryan Klitzsch presents this topic from the transportation safety planners and State Highway Safety Office perspective.

Tennessee Department of Transportation

Develop a Motorcycle Safety Strategic Plan (MSSP) for the State of Tennessee that builds on the Strategic Highway Safety Plan

Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization

Develop a multimodal Transportation Safety Management Plan (TSMP) for the Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) that documented the area’s transportation safety problems and identified a comprehensive suite of strategies to improve safety and save lives.

National Cooperative Highway Research Program

Cambridge Systematics developed a unique boot camp approach to help state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, and others integrate safety into the transportation planning process.

Safety Planning, Analysis, Engineering and Implementation

We are leaders in Transportation Safety Planning (TSP), a proactive approach that integrates safety considerations into the transportation planning process at all levels, and we pioneered the concept of “conscious planning” in transportation. Our work led to changes in federal law to mandate safety as a separate planning factor and core funding program. We are experts in quantitative safety planning and engineering, providing quantitative estimates of crash frequency to help agencies plan and prioritize investments.

Transportation Safety

Transportation-related accidents, injuries and deaths take a tremendous human and economic toll. They also, in many instances, are predictable and preventable. Cambridge Systematics takes a multidisciplinary, multimodal approach that emphasizes the four Es of safety: Engineering, Enforcement, Education and Emergency Response. Our specialties include strategic safety planning, program and project implementation, data collection and analysis, countermeasure selection and prioritization, monitoring, evaluation, training, and communications.
