  • Abstract:
    "Introduction FHWA’s Office of Highway Safety (HSA) initiated a program evaluation by Booz Allen Hamilton to assess the overall effectiveness of the Agency’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program. The evaluation covers pedestrian and bicycle safety activities conducted throughout FHWA headquarters’ safety, planning, and research offices and field Resource Center and Division Offices. The evaluation (1) includes a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the effectiveness of FHWA’s current program design and delivery and (2) identifies specific program management and performance recommendations to improve program outcomes. Evaluation Overview FHWA’s primary customers for the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program are state DOTs and local agencies. The program develops guidance on processes to improve safety planning, develops and tests specific pedestrian and bicycle safety countermeasures and strategies, and provides training and technical assistance. Rather than assessing the effectiveness of individual program activities, this evaluation looks at the overall management processes FHWA uses to identify needs and trends from its primary customers, how best to deliver these services, and the impacts of its activities in reducing pedestrian and bicycle safety fatalities and injuries nationwide. HSA conducts evaluations of individual programs within its office to identify opportunities to optimize the performance of its activities. The results of this evaluation of pedestrian and bicycle safety activities may be used by FHWA management to support decision making among the broad range of priorities and programs the agency administers. FHWA may use the findings and recommendations from this evaluation to select a set of short- and long-term actions to improve the management of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program."
