Autonomous vehicles may have the potential to support core elements of the Safe System approach, which strives to eliminate fatal and serious transportation injuries. Fehr & Peers partnered with ITE to publish “Autonomous Vehicle Considerations under a Safe System Framework,” which explores potential AV benefits, risks, and considerations within the Safe System framework.
Fehr & Peers is proud to announce the opening of our Petaluma office space! As we continue in our dedication to providing innovative transportation solutions that improve communities, our Petaluma location will allow us to better support our existing and future clients throughout Sonoma, Napa, Marin, Mendocino and Lake Counties.
What happens when the safety goals for now and the goals for the future are in conflict? A people-focused Safe System approach considers vulnerabilities today and in the future. Recently adopted as a priority by agencies such as FHWA, Caltrans, the City of Philadelphia, and the Washington State Department of Transportation, safe system is a traffic safety framework emphasizing shared responsibility and a proactive approach where death and serious injury are recognized as unacceptable costs of travel on our roads.
Our customizable Crowdsource+ tool empowers community members to participate in the transportation planning process and provides clients with an effective way to receive and prioritize feedback.
Partnering with our client, we took on new visual communications strategies through the lens of equitable engagement to elevate participation and build energy around safety improvements.
