New Research Uses Safety View to Understand School Zone Road Safety in Washington D.C.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law directed unprecedented levels of funding to Safe Routes to School and other safety programs.
In recent years, Washington, D.C. officials have continued to prioritize safety around schools, and more is needed in this area to link causes-and-effects of speeding and traffic-related injuries around schools directly.
We used Safety View by GM Future Roads & INRIX to analyze crash, volume, speed, and demographic data within a quarter-mile of 27 schools in Washington, D.C. to compare key safety metrics.
What You’ll Learn:
> School Zone designation impact on speeding, crash rates, injury severity, crash type and more.
> The impact of traffic signs or school zone “types” on speeding.
> Speeding trends around schools by income and geography.
> How data available in Safety View can help transportation agencies understand road safety and the efficacy of safety measures.
