TransPlex (Transportation Planning Exchange) is Florida's premier event for collaborating with transportation planners, engineers, and policy makers throughout the state to Plan, Connect, and Innovate our way into Florida's future.
TransPlex brings cutting edge content through a variety of in-person and virtual conferences, as well as our new Web Series.
The October 2021 Safety Web Series is focused on the elements of the Safe System Approach to eliminating fatalities and
serious injuries on our roadways. As we shift our thinking about traditional safety measures to an all-inclusive view of the roadway and the user, we must be proactive and view safety as a shared responsibility.
We invite you to join us every Friday in October for a series of webinars focused on the five elements of the Safe System approach: Safe Vehicles, Safe Road Users, Safe Roads, Safe Speeds, and Post-crash Care. We will hear from a
dynamic group of policy and industry professionals leading the way for a comprehensive planning and design approach that creates a safe transportation system for all users.
Click on the webinar title below to register. FDOT employees are encouraged to register through Learning Curve. Speaker bios available here.
Each webinar offers 1.5 certification maintenance credits for AICP members and 1.5 Professional Development Hours for Engineers. FDOT employees who register and initiate the webinar through learning Curve will be able to access their certificates in Learning Curve upon completion of the live webinar and confirmation of attendance. Non-FDOT employees will have an opportunity to request a certificate be sent via email after the live webinar.
October 1, 2021 - Recording available!Recording: Opening Session and Safe VehiclesPowerPoint SlidesJoin us for opening remarks from FDOT District 7 Secretary David Gwynn as he shares his perspective on safety, and how Safety plays a lead role in the Department’s Vital Few. To set up the five-webinar series, Mark Doctor, FHWA will share an overview of the Safe System approach and what this means for planning, engineering, and policies in Florida.
In the United States, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of injury and death killing over 100 people every day. Safe Vehicles is recognized by the Safe System Approach to transportation safety as one of the five elements to a comprehensive approach to transportation safety. Join the Safe Vehicle panelists to learn how traditional and emerging automotive strategies and technologies aim to deliver greater safety benefits to help prevent these injuries and deaths. Panelists will also discuss the future of safety for fully automated cars and trucks, both inside and out.
October 8, 2021 - Recording available!Recording: Safe Road UsersPowerPoint SlidesThe Safe System Approach to transportation safety recognizes Safe Road Users as one of the five elements to a comprehensive approach to transportation safety. This approach emphasizes the importance of designing a transportation system that considers the safety of all road users. Traditionally, educating road users and enforcing safe behaviors has been the approach taken to improve safety. However, emerging data shows us we must look beyond this traditional approach and question how transportation equity and safety intersect. Join us as we explore how equity impacts safety and what we as transportation professionals can do to ensure equitable safety for all road users.
October 15, 2021 (9:00 am – 10:30 am)Safe RoadsThe Safe System approach emphasizes the importance of designing roadways that help to mitigate the mistakes drivers will inevitably make. Traditional engineering and design solutions have gone a long way to deliver safe roads but emerging trends shows us we must look beyond this traditional approach and continue to innovate the way we design and build our roads. Join us as we explore how the alignment of safety and policy planning is leading to new and innovative roadway design.
October 22, 2021 (9:00 am – 10:30 am)Safe SpeedsJoin as we discuss “Safe Speeds,” one of the five main strategies of the Federal Highway Administration’s Safe System Approach. The Safe Speeds strategy focuses on aspects that encourage context-appropriate travel speeds including roadway design improvements, speed limits, education and enforcement, and technology-based enforcement. Panelists will share new guidance and polices, cutting-edge research projects, and real-world examples illustrating Florida is working to improve driver safety and behavior in all contexts.
October 29, 2021 (9:00 am – 10:30 am)Post-Crash CareThe Safe System Approach uses a comprehensive approach to add multiple layers of protection for road users. However, the Safe System Approach also recognizes that if a crash occurs, post-crash care is a critical piece to reducing death and serious injury. Post-crash response requires a collaborative effort on behalf of our trained law enforcement and emergency response professionals. During this session you will have a unique opportunity to hear from law enforcement and emergency medical professionals as they share with us their experiences on emergency response. Finally, we will explore how working together, we can incorporate best practices in planning and designing a transportation system that supports the fastest response to essential post-crash care.
