Missouri Systemic Countermeasures to Improve Pedestrian Safety

Pedestrian safety on and around Missouri’s travelways is of the utmost importance to Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and county, city and other local partners. Improving awareness in the driving public and visibility for pedestrians at uncontrolled crossings is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and many variables contribute to making one or more safety measures more ideal than another proven option when addressing pedestrian crossings. This project will focus on providing an easy to use tool for local and state selection of better pedestrian safety countermeasures. Long-term measures of success would be implementation of more and better pedestrian improvements, followed by annual decreases in pedestrian related crashes and pedestrian fatalities.
