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

Safety Risk Assessment

The systemic approach to safety analysis identifies transportation system characteristics or risk factors that are associated with particular crashes. Risk factors can be characteristics such as curve radius, number of travel lanes, shoulder type and width, or form of intersection control in combination with pedestrian and bicycle facilities. CS is a leader in using systemic analysis to identify risk factors and characteristics and guide decision-makers in prioritizing locations for safety treatments.

Safety Data Systems Management, Analysis and Implementation

Clients bring their most critical and complicated safety issues to CS for our deep expertise and proven, data-driven methodologies. From conducting network analysis, to developing countermeasures against safety risks, to incorporating safety data into the planning and performance management process, Cambridge Systematics helps agencies maximize safety investments to save lives.

Rural Road Safety Planning

A significant number of crashes occur on rural/local roads where it is often difficult to isolate high-crash locations. Often the lanes on these roads are narrow, shoulders are absent, the clear zone is nonexistent, pavement markings and signage are worn and/or obsolete, and to compound all this, resources for fixing them are limited or not available. We understand the technical, financial and human resource challenges confronting the local and rural safety communities.

Florida Department of Transportation

Develop a comprehensive program to improve transportation safety for mature drivers and pedestrians in Florida through education and awareness, training, and outreach with an added benefit of improved safety for all road users.

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

FHWA’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is a data-driven, strategic approach to improving highway safety. Cambridge Systematics has a deep understanding of the HSIP through the identification and documentation of successful, innovative, and effective practices.

Transportation Safety Planning

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.
