BIKESAFE Update

FHWA recently completed its update to the Bicycle Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System, commonly known as BIKESAFE, to reflect the latest research and best practices surrounding designs for bicycle safety. The website also offers PEDSAFE, which provides practitioners with the latest information available for improving the safety and mobility of those who walk. An online Countermeasure Selection Tool asks for simple input about a problem location and then provides a list of potential treatments and programs that could improve safety.
