AN AWARE PEDESTRIAN SAFETY COURSE. By Terence Morris, Author & Founder, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION. OCTOBER 12, 2018. 2:11 P.M.
PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION NETWORK participants will be gaining more insight into the needs and viewpoints of pedestrians in our community.
OUR Aware Pedestrian Crosswalk Education course becomes a success with the cooperation of local businesses, organizations, and pedestrian safety advocates.
Our Aware Pedestrian Crosswalk Education course is designed to help participants question related public and private transportation policies while working with city officials, planners, engineers and manufacturers/suppliers.
Our Aware Pedestrian Crosswalk Education course helps participants to understand Organized Transportation Systems (OTS), Automated/Connected Traffic Systems (ATS), and Crosswalk Intersection Culpability (CIC).
As “An Aware Pedestrian” it is important to know how you can play a vital role in helping foster Crosswalk/ Intersection Policy Strategies in your community. The following objectives, addressed together, as a Network, can help re-ignite our structured-forum voice.
Three objectives can be addressed in these strategies:
1. Reduce Overall Fatalities and Injuries;
2. Improve Crash Data and its Availability; and
3. Facilitate a Safer Vehicle Fleet.
Objective: Reduce Overall Fatalities and Injuries
1. Improve EMS Estimated Time of Arrival at accident scene.
2. Identify “safety corridors” and increase fines for moving
violations in these problem (high crash) corridors (“higher
fines in safety corridor” concept).
3. Facilitate the availability of crash data and its utilization to
identify and prioritize high crash corridors and locations.
4. Reinstate the State Vehicle Safety Inspection Programs.
