Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operations: A How-To Guide

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has created this guidance document for law enforcement professionals, policy makers, and other interested groups and organizations. This guide provides strategies and techniques for planning, implementing, and evaluating pedestrian safety enforcement activities. Findings and recommendations are based on a brief review of the professional and scientific literature and interviews with 37 programs working on pedestrian safety enforcement. Key input into the guide was also provided by a Delphi panel, which assisted in the review and synthesis of findings using consensus decision-making. The primary objective of this guide is to provide tips and guidance on how States and communities can effectively deploy pedestrian safety enforcement operations to reduce pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The guide includes a summary of promising practices, guidance on planning and implementing an operation, a discussion of several considerations and variations, recommendations regarding the evaluation of pedestrian safety programs, and a series of case studies. The guide also contains an Appendix with sample forms and other useful information.
