Preliminary data shows traffic fatalities are up sharply in 2020 :( Fatality rates may see the highest increase since 1924.
Steve Pyburn
01:04:58
Impacts to peds at various vehicle speeds also apply to cyclists.
Steve Pyburn
01:05:39
There is a direct correlation between higher speeds and higher deaths.
Steve Pyburn
01:06:26
A survey in Sacramento found the average speed on residential streets was over 35 mph!
Jonathan Yee
01:06:46
Is there a similar graphic containing 15mph and 25mph? If so, can you share? I'd like to use for 15 mph school speed limits. Thank you
Soutchai Vongsa
01:08:10
Is LPI widely used in California?
Andrew Easterling
01:08:11
Is there a warrant for LPI or a standard condition that could be used for justifying the installation?
Steve Pyburn
01:10:18
LPI is used in a number of locations. I know the City of Sacramento has been using them for years, also used in South Lake Tahoe.
Steve Pyburn
01:11:38
There have only been 8 known pedestrian and bicycle fatalities at all roundabouts in the US since 1990!
Garland Wong
01:12:04
I think there continues to be a perception that roundabouts are less safe for pedestrians and bikes.
Hillary Isebrands
01:13:15
Here is a link to an FHWA informational video on LPIs with some additional information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWzUkpgngGo
Hillary Isebrands
01:13:29
FHWA's Handbook for Designing Roadways for the Aging Population recommends the use of the LPI at intersections with high turning vehicle volumes.
Steve Pyburn
01:14:03
Not likely to be warrants for LPI, but here is some information on where to use themUse LPIs at intersections where heavy turning traffic comes into conflict with crossing pedestrians during the permissive phase of the signal cycle. LPIs are typically applied where both pedestrian volumes and turning volumes are high enough to warrant an additional dedicated interval for pedestrian-only traffic.https://nacto.org/publication/urban-street-design-guide/intersection-design-elements/traffic-signals/leading-pedestrian-interval/
michael roberts
01:16:11
Does the data indicate the non-intersection fatalities are crossing related? Are uncontrolled crossing locations the same as non-intersection locations?
Steve Pyburn
01:16:18
The increase in bike use is likely a contributing factor, along with higher vehicle speeds. E-bikes allow people to ride faster, and that may lead to some cyclists getting into situations they can’t control.
Steve Pyburn
01:17:09
There are ped crossing conflicts at roundabouts. However, at most roundabouts, the peds only have to look one direction at a time to cross from the side to the splitter island, and while crossing from the splitter island to the side. In addition, vehicles are travelling much slower coming out of the roundabout and have the opportunity to see and stop for peds.
Ken Kochevar
01:18:48
Vongsa, Caltrans has institutionalized LPIs. Shortly they will be coming out with a memo that provides guidance on the installation of them.
Steve Pyburn
01:19:42
Of the 8 bike and ped fatals at roundabouts I mentioned earlier, only 5 were peds in 30 years. That is remarkable.
Andrew Easterling
01:21:07
Thank you. I have implemented LPIs at several intersections with high right turn volumes in my city. Now I’ve received questions from the public why it isn’t installed at other locations, and I don’t have a great response without policies to point to. Without warrants or standard procedures it is difficult to explain. My other concern is liability, if there is an injury in another intersection without LPI, the personal injury lawyers will ask why different standard are being applied. Really hoping the CAMUTCD can be elaborate on this in the next update.
Rob Bregoff
01:21:31
David Chiu introduced AB 550 to allow cities in CA to install speed cameras to control driver speed.

Steve Pyburn
01:22:28
You can consider uncontrolled and mid-block to be the same thing.
Scott Collins
01:23:28
For PHB, MUTCD calls out to look at the # of Peds crossing at that location during a specified time frame. the countermeasure table you showed earlier uses speed and volumes only. Should the # of peds crossing be taken into account when designing for a PHB
Steve Pyburn
01:25:20
I would advise developing numeric criteria and guidelines for guiding the use of LPIs then prioritizing locations based on that criteria,. You jurisdiction’s attorney may have additional advice to lower liability.
Steve Pyburn
01:26:29
Yes, ped volumes, as well as ped types, are an important consideration. Drivers need to see the reason they are stopped.
Soutchai Vongsa
01:26:31
Without CA-MUTCD guidance/standards, LPI can create a liability issue for agencies.
James Winslow
01:27:06
Fig. 54 has a better sign for PHBs to use. Clearer communication and education to drivers on how to use a PHB that the one show on the slide (which is basic).

The City of Modesto has installed the High Friction Surface treatment at two locations within the City. Three years prior we had 4-6 accidents a year. The year after we had 0 accidents!

Andrew Easterling
02:20:30
Is there any guidance for clear zones in urban areas? We are receiving a lot of request for parklets, and outdoor dining, or noticing businesses are installing themselves without consulting with the City. Are there clear zone standards for more urban/suburban settings?
Ken Kochevar
02:20:47
Please list any questions you have for roadway departures.
Ken Kochevar
02:24:13
Andrew, I believe there is some guidance in the Roadside Safety Design course. I will look in my notes to see if I can find anything. I would say you want to minimize any trees greater than 4" as well as poles or other obstacles as far as possible away from the curb and gutter. Stay tuned...
Michael Britton
02:25:09
Have there been any considerations or study made for Rolling Barriers, as used in Korea?
Ryan Murray
02:26:30
Space is the biggest factor in urban areas and it would seem that narrower roadways, slower vehicle speeds (20mph) and safer bike/ped protected infrastructure is favored over expanding clear zones of shoulders.
Andrew Easterling
02:27:24
Thank you, I know AASHTO requires 18" from face of curb and that's the standard we typically apply. However we are starting to see outdoor dining on the encroaching into the on street parking areas with no curb and very little separation from edge of travel way

Another countermeasure to consider when discussing edge lines is to increase the width from 4" to 6". Recent studies show when this is done on a 2 - lane rural road, there can be up to a 17.5% crash reduction factor for all crashes and up to a 36.5% crash reduction factor for all F and I crashes as per Park CMF ID 4736 and 4737.

RCUT seems counter to the fast lane on a highspeed road. Does it increase rear end conflicts (acknowledging rear ends are not as severe)?
Ken Kochevar
03:08:43
Andrew, To better answer your question about CRZ in urban areas, this area should be a combination of lateral or operational offset (1.5') plus a clear zone. In a study to evaluate crashes with fixed objects on urban corridors with a raised curb, 93% + of the crashes happened within 6' of the travel way, 82%+ within 4' and 62%+ within 2'. This should give you a little idea of how much CRZ to provide with what impediments you have on the side of the road. I would shoot for 4 - 6'. In regards to trees being a barrier for pedestrians, FARS data from 2008 showed 48 pedestrians were killed on the roadside vs. 395 people were killed from impacts with trees on the same streets. This goes back to the comment about no trees greater than 4". Finally, I can pictures the scene you present regarding seating for restaurants outside close to the curb. I don't have any answer for this other than view the speed and volume of vehicles passing by and talk with owners about the safety impacts.
Steve Pyburn
03:09:35
Here is one source for FYA, with some research. Some locations have seen mixed results. Effectiveness will likely vary based on the approach used for left turns – whether they are protected, permitted, or protected-permitted. https://www.dot.state.mn.us/trafficeng/signals/flashingyellowarrow.html#:~:text=A%20safer%2C%20more%20efficient%20left,after%20yielding%20to%20oncoming%20traffic.
Steve Pyburn
03:10:24
In 2016, Caltrans did a before and after study of crashes of roundabouts on state state highways. At that time, they found a 100% reduction in Fatal and Serious Injury crashes and 67% reduction of total crashes.
Steve Pyburn
03:10:45
The skepticism for roundabouts is often unfounded and based on fear of change. Obviously, these are hard to overcome, regardless of overwhelming safety data. The Kansas State University ListServe has a lot of professionals that address this. You can sign up for the listserve at https://trbroundabouts.com/listserv/ Persistence is certainly needed. It may also be beneficial to work with community advocates to get support, and meet with city leaders one on one.
Ken Kochevar
03:12:02
Erin and Susie, You need to have Hillary with Steve and Ivy's support help you persuade your Boards about these misconceptions. Once one goes in and their fears are relieved, they will want more. This is what I was referring to as far as the assistance we (FHWA and Caltrans) can offer to you! Take advantage of it.

03:13:40
We are installing more roundabouts as a result of the documented safety, operational, and air quality benefits. However, after digging into the ICE safety analysis, the CMFs for roundabouts don’t usually distinguish between single lane and multi-lane roundabouts. The data in the CMF clearinghouse is a bit of mixed bag when it comes to multilane roundabouts. We have a few multi-lane roundabouts under design and the complexity and costs have increased tremendously to include additional safety measures recommended in the NCHRP reports. I’ve been revisiting the original ICE analysis and wondering if the B/C ratios are still accurate. Are you aware of any available resources on the safety effects of a single lane roundabout versus a multilane roundabout?
Rob Bregoff
03:14:08
What is throughput of a 4-lane roundabout compared to signalized intersection?
Hillary Isebrands
03:14:53
@Jonathan Yee - there are different crash experiences for urban vs rural and single lane vs multi-lane roundabouts. NCHRP 672: Roundabouts: An informational guide
Hillary Isebrands
03:18:36
Rural roundabouts on high speed roadways have nearly a 90% reduction in fatal and injury crashes. Most of these are single lane roundabouts. The break down on roundabout safety can be found in the Highway Safety Manual and in the NCHRP 672 Exhibit 5-9 that shows the breakdown by setting.
Erin Haagenson
03:19:06
that is very helpful. does anyone have links to staff reports or presentations they did to convince councils or boards?
Hillary Isebrands
03:24:21
@ Rob Bregoff - Single lane roundabouts have capacities upwards of 27,000 AADT and two lane roundabouts have capacities near 45,000 AADT. Of course, the peak hour flows and turning movements make a difference on specifics including delays and queues. FHWA capacity research can found here and is the basis for HCM 6 roundabout models (https://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/intersection/roundabouts/fhwasa15070.pdf).

Michael, I'm sure Robert wants to chime in here, but I'll just add that the LRSP includes all 4 Es (eng., enf., ed., emsa) whereas the SSAP only focuses in on engineering countermeasures. This is the value of the LRSP as there are more layers of redundancy in preventing F + SI crashes under the safe systems approach.

How can we be "proactive" on roadways that have no collisions, or very low collisions? The perspective in the past has been, if there are no collisions, then the roadway/intersection is functioning as intended - thus, there are no problems to solve.
Ken Kochevar
04:52:12
Michael, You can be proactive by using the systemic approach as we will discuss in the last presentation today. Crashes especially in rural areas are random and we will give an example to show this.
Alan Ta
04:53:00
emsa?
Michael Britton
04:53:06
we do "data based decision making". How can we use anecdotal information in a data-based framework? We see all the time that "speeding" is often overestimated. If we get anecdotal information that cars are just driving "too damn fast", how is this actionable? Perception is not always reality.

Hi Susan, It should be. Take a look at the areas that LRSPs cover and if your plan is very similar, it should be ok. You can send it to me, if you want me to confirm.

From 1973 to 1974, fatalities dropped by 17% per capita (similar VMT) because national highway speed limit was capped at 55MPH. Shouldn't this be part of the conversation?

Matiel, Our sister agency, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have been and will continue to focus on this issue (DUI) through their "Countermeasures that Work."

CalSTA did a series of workshops in 2019 for the" Zero Traffic Fatalities Task Force." Workshop 3 focused on speed limits, speed management and speed enforcement. Here is the link to that ongoing effort that may be helpful regarding your question on speed limits. https://calsta.ca.gov/subject-areas/enforcement-and-safety/zero-traffic-fatalities

Ken great job!
Soutchai Vongsa
06:27:25
I don't think Caltrans has any guidance on the use of mirrors. Our county received a request to install mirrors on our road. Our county did not install any mirrors citing liability issues.
Marissa Garcia

We also had vandalism issues with mirrors that became a hazard.
