In partnership with UC Berkeley’s Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC) with generous funding from the California Office of Traffic Safety we are conducting Community Pedestrian Safety Trainings (CPSTs) throughout the state of California. These workshops strengthen community skills, educate residents about pedestrian safety best practices, and conducts walkability assessments to help residents identify and prioritize next steps to develop a pedestrian safety action plan. CPSTs bring together community residents, seniors, parents, and youth, as well as city or county officials from Transportation/Public Works, Public Health, Schools and the Police Departments. Read our Transportation Research Board paper (Community Pedestrian Safety Workshops in California) and view our poster here.
Beginning in 2016, the CPST program has been expanded to incorporate strategies to improve bicyclist safety and has been renamed the Community Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Training (CPBST) program.
For a summary of CPST 2009-2014 Workshop outcomes, please review Community Pedestrian Safety Training: Results of follow up surveys from 12 participating communities or our 2015 Annual Report. If you are interested in hosting a CPST workshop in your community, please contact Tony Dang.
