Tuesday, May 18, 2021 5:00:00 PM UTC - 8:00:00 PM UTC
Rural roadway departures make up a third of U.S. traffic fatalities—about 30 people a day. The Every Day Counts round five (EDC-5) initiative, Focus on Reducing Rural Roadway Departures (FoRRRwD), features four pillars: Addressing All Public Roads, Systemic Approach, Safety Action Plans, and Proven Countermeasures. Rumble strips are a low-cost safety countermeasure that can reduce single-vehicle run-off-road and cross-center line crashes. Rumble strips, whether center line, edge line, or shoulder, alert inattentive or drowsy motorists whose vehicles have drifted out of their travel lane. State, local, and tribal agencies – come and learn how several agencies have used the four pillars of FoRRRwD to implement this countermeasure to keep vehicles in their lanes, and how you can do the same. Speakers/Topics • Logan Beise, ND DOT and Jason Benson, Cass County, ND, will discuss North Dakota DOT's implementation of rumbles and present a county perspective of the same. • David Swenka, CDOT and Katrina Kloberdanz, CDOT will provide an overview of the Colorado experience with rumbles. • Maria Silver, Macomb County, Michigan will talk about her County's centerline "mumble" strip installation project.
