Safety

Safe, healthy, and equitable mobility for all is our core driving philosophy in developing transportation safety plans and programs.

When we design safety plans and strategies in partnership with our clients, we identify hot spot and systemic improvements that are both responsive and proactive in addressing safety across a local community. We also understand the importance of being on the cutting edge of current and emerging safety guidelines and regulations in a changing world. As safety awareness grows and evolves, communities will need to create and address new and emerging regulations and guidelines. We help clients unpack, understand, and undertake these complex efforts and initiatives, such as Local Roadway Safety Plans (LRSPs) and Systematic Safety Analysis Reports (SSARs). Going beyond the planning, we also know that developing a safety plan is just a first step. We work with our clients in assembling competitive grant proposals to help fund their projects and improvements.

Our experience with Vision Zero runs deep. In addition to coauthoring the Vision Zero Core Elements Guide, our Vision Zero work is featured in multiple presentations and has garnered numerous awards and honors. We have helped multiple communities launch and maintain successful Vision Zero safety programs by developing a process of critical steps for practical implementation, and then providing support and technical assistance through that phase.

Learn how forward-thinking cities include ITS elements to evolve into smart cities — an urban area that uses technology to derive data and improve quality of life for all.

We employ an innovative, data-driven approach. 

Through our partnerships with innovative tech firms, we effectively build robust contextual databases, allowing us to identify top risk factors that contribute to transportation safety issues and concerns. We use our in-house tools developed through our own research and development program to streamline safety analysis so we can spend more time interpreting results and developing recommendations for our clients.

We commit to community safety goals. 

We partner with our clients to develop authentic engagement programs, identify opportunities for equitable investments in safety, and help communities build safety programs and projects that meet their diverse needs. We bring together multi-disciplinary stakeholders to learn from local experience and develop plans that are responsive to the context and address safety for people of all ages and abilities.

We support the safe systems approach. 

Understanding that humans make mistakes, we recommend deploying strategies that focus on reducing the chance that mistakes lead to deaths or severe injuries. We package improvements aimed at reducing traffic fatalities and severe injury collisions by identifying the types and locations of collisions, and the risk factors contributing to those collisions.
