As the need to protect residential areas from effects of traffic continues to increase, the Traffic Calming practice has evolved. Some traditional Traffic Calming measures remain, new ones have been engineered, while others have changed in their design, application and/or effects. In 2017, ITE and FHWA developed the "Traffic Calming ePrimer" to serve as a resource for the public and profession to understand the toolbox of individual traffic calming measures and their effects. The ePrimer can help to choose which measure(s) would be best to solve specific neighborhood traffic problems and have acceptable benefits and negative impacts. Based on the information contained in the ePrimer, the ITE Traffic Engineering Council recently revised the Traffic Calming Fact Sheets in the ITE website. These sheets have long been a popular staple on the ITE website. This workshop presents the current state of the Traffic Calming practice and presents the updated and new Fact Sheets on the individual Traffic Calming measures.

Zero. Some say we can't get there. But as traffic safety professionals, we know even one fatality on our roadway system is too many. Learn what it takes to develop or advance a zero-fatality program, how to use tools to institutionalize your strategy, and about best practices for engaging traditional and non-traditional partners in your effort. Through panel discussions, case studies and networking with other practitioners, you'll be armed with strategies and tactics you can implement in your community, region or state. Together we can make zero an attainable goal!

This roundtable workshop includes both presentations of noteworthy speed management examples and provides a chance for a conversation and sharing of local experiences. These roundtable conversations will support the Federal Highway Administration's efforts to identify, develop, and promote speed management noteworthy practices carried out by State/local governments to reduce speeding related fatalities.

The focus of this workshop is on understanding the ethical issues that arise as transportation is transformed by the application of new/emerging technologies. The speakers in this session will talk specifically about how to maintain focus on upholding our ethical obligations to plan for the health, safety, and welfare of the public while embracing these changes. Hand-in-hand with these ethical issues are issues of social justice, as the space between those that can afford to use the new technologies and live in communities with adequate infrastructure and those that cannot is continuing to grow. Certificates will be provided for those attending this workshop for use in satisfying annual ethics training requirements.

Attaining Objectives and Performance Based Management of Traffic Signal Programs with Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures The workshop will explore how Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures are currently being used to improve traffic signal timing, maintenance, and operations activities within traffic signal programs to address safety, mobility and reliability goals. ATSPM technology and the operational strategies they validate, allow agencies to keep track of traffic signal performance on an ongoing basis. Instead of waiting for months for information from signal timing studies, agencies can respond to citizen complaints, maintenance and operation issues within days and hours, saving agencies time and money. As part of the FHWA Every Day Counts 4 Technology Initiative, the implementation of ATSPM has been accelerated significantly and has become a core part of signal management and operation in over 30 States. This technology will transform business processes and will be operative to validating the effectiveness of connected vehicle applications, and operational strategies aimed at improving the safety and efficiency of signalized intersections for all modes.

This workshop will introduce participants to the FHWA Safe Transportation for Every Pedestrian (STEP) program that is promoting countermeasures proven to reduce pedestrian crash risk. The workshop will highlight the importance of pedestrian crossings to a complete transportation network, and attendees will learn how to apply the FHWA Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety at Uncontrolled Crossing Locations to local plans, projects, and safety programs. The workshop includes interactive sessions and features case studies where the countermeasures have been implemented with successful safety outcomes. Peter Eun, with the FHWA Resource Center, will present and facilitate the STEP workshop. During the first part of this workshop, participants will be joined by participants from the Targeted Efforts to Improve Rural Road Safety Workshop for an overview by Michael Griffith, FHWA Office of Safety of all the FHWA Every Day Counts program safety innovations since 2009 including: Safety Edge, High Friction Surface Treatments, Innovative Intersection and Interchange Designs, Road Diets, and Data-Driven Safety Analysis Tools. Opportunities still exist to get wider scale deployment, so come learn how to overcome challenges and obtain the resources you need to advance implementation of these practical safety solutions. Following this overview, each workshop will continue in separate rooms. (Note: this was originally listed as the Every Day Counts: Saving Lives for a Decade Workshop.

This was originally called the Every Day Counts: Saving Lives for a Decade Workshop. This workshop will focus on the steps necessary to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatal crashes on rural roads by helping participants identify rural roadway safety issues and risks, as well as proven safety countermeasures to address those risks. Attendees will also learn how to develop roadway safety plans that use systemic analysis and implementation of proven solutions to improve the safety performance of their rural roads. Hillary Isebrands, with the FHWA Resource Center, will present and facilitate this workshop.

The goals of this workshop are three-fold. First, this session strives to bring awareness of crowdsourced applications to transportation leadership, operations and ITS managers, and technical leads within agencies responsible for traffic management and operations. Second this session strives to initiate dialogue that prompts agencies to consider using Crowdsourced data. Third, this session aims to inform agencies of the FHWA Every Day Counts, Round 5 (EDC-5) Innovation, "Use of Crowdsourcing to Advance Operations," and the suite of resources available to help State and local agencies accelerate the implementation of crowdsourced data for operations. During this session, participants will hear from experts on the use of crowdsourced data from cellular-based sources, smartphone apps, and enhanced law enforcement communications through computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems. Moreover, participants will learn about the FHWA EDC-5 Innovation, "Use of Crowdsourcing to Advance Operations," and how the EDC-5 Innovation Team will be providing assistance to State and local agencies to accelerate the implementation of crowdsourced data for operations. And most importantly, participants will be encouraged to ask questions to understand and navigate around barriers that might otherwise hinder an agency's effective use of crowdsourcing.
