Visit the NJDOT Technology Transfer webpage to view videos describing six of FHWA’s Proven Safety Countermeasures that improve pedestrian safety. NJDOT developed these videos to train and educate viewers on the design features and safety benefits of these initiatives.

FHWA began promoting Proven Safety Countermeasures in 2008 to encourage implementation among state, tribal and local transportation agencies. The list was updated in 2012 and 2017 and now comprises 20 countermeasures that support infrastructure improvements. These safety treatments and strategies were chosen based on proven effectiveness and benefits and can be adopted to reduce roadway departures, and intersection, and pedestrian and bicycle crashes.

Video subjects include:

  • “What is a Leading Pedestrian Interval?”
  • “What is a Walkway?”
  • “What is a Pedestrian Crossing Island?”
  • “What is a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon?”
  • “What is a Road Diet?”
  • “What is a Reduced Left-Turn Conflict Intersection?”
