Crash Data 101 for Pedestrian/Bike Professionals
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission prepares high-crash location lists and crash factsheets that show where and what type of safety issues exist in central Ohio. This presentation will discuss how crash data is collected and reported, and how the data can be used to promote biking and walking. Boulder, CO recently built a GIS database allowing analysis of motor vehicle crashes involving bicyclists or pedestrians. This tool enables the City to review crash data and address problematic locations and behaviors. Boulder's Bike/Ped Planner will present the methodology used to develop the database and analyze data, as well as findings of the inaugural Safe Streets Boulder report.

Pedestrian Safety Action Plan Implementation
The Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (PSAP) program was initiated by FHWA about six years ago to identify 'focus cities' and 'focus states' with a need for enhanced pedestrian safety efforts. This presentation will describe that program in terms of pedestrian crash trends. The session will also provide a framework for other agencies to use the program to improve pedestrian safety in a systematic and effective manner.
