The number of pedestrians killed on Portland streets was 15 in 2010. Mayor Sam Adams reconfirmed his commitment to Vision Zero at the 6th Annual Transportation Safety Summit in March . While the overall safety numbers in Portland have shown a long-term, downward trend, the pedestrian fatalities have remained relatively static. There are a wide variety of treatments that the City is using to make crossings that provide pedestrians safer places to cross. PBOT Signals Division Manager Peter Koonce will describe the use of traffic signals and beacons and the results from studies completed to evaluate the effectiveness of the various treatments. Participants will come away with a greater understanding of why the City is using beacons and the applications where they are being installed.

Light refreshments will be served. PE credit is available and AICP credit is pending.
