After completion of the workshop, participants should be able to: • Explain the need for making roads safer • Separate safety myths from reality • Demonstrate how to “read the road” • Describe practical and low-cost countermeasures to improve safety, both on existing roads and during the design stage • Indentify ways to plan, implement and fund low-cost safety measures • Access existing resources to find the answer and/or data to address a question or problem that comes up on the job • Identify effective ways of encouraging communities to make their roads safer • Create an action list for implementing at least one safety improvement at their local agency. Who Should Attend: This program is aimed at local and rural road supervisors and public works personnel. Others who would benefit from the training include elected officials; law enforcement personnel; local, regional and rural planning and development organizations; town safety committees and consultants.
