Data-Driven Approaches to Road Safety

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, March 30, 2017

Though we live in the 21st century, an era supported by data-driven decision-making, we’re too often relying on 20th-century (or even 19th-century) methods to collect, and learn from, transportation data. But if Vision Zero is to truly succeed, these methods need to improve significantly. Come hear about innovative ways to measure and analyze behavior that can be used to forecast risk and prevent traffic deaths, and learn how they can be implemented in our cities. Co-presented by Northern California APA.
