By: Herbel, SusanPublication details: Washington DC Transportation research circular E-C041, 2002Description: 78 s, 3,71 MbyteSubject(s): Safety | Transport network | Transport mode | Working group | USA | 80 | J06 | Prc | PrdOnline resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: This Circular is the outgrowth of a presentation to the Committee on Transportation Safety Management during the 1999 TRB Annual Meeting. As a result of the presentation, the Committee identified a group of individuals interested in safety and planning. They met and discussed ways to further implement the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA- 21) requirement to include safety and security as criteria in the transportation planning process. The group organized an initial workshop to define the issues. Based on the workshop, the group saw an opportunity for further implementation by assisting states in holding similar workshops or forums. A pilot or demonstration of this idea was conducted by six states. This Circular reports on the process and outcomes from those forums in Part I. The forums suggested this type of activity produced useful outcomes and benefits for the states. Hence, Part II is a toolkit for use by states to organize and conduct safety-conscious planning forums statewide or within regions/districts of a state.
