Alta’s safety analysis tools can help communities go beyond just looking at collisions to identifying the root causes of safety issues and potential countermeasures to address them.
Improving safety is at the core of all active transportation improvements. Bicyclists and pedestrians are disproportionately affected by collisions. Alta works to help communities understand and address traffic safety problems with a variety of tools, ranging from hot spot analyses, which identify locations where crashes tend to occur, to systemic safety studies, which combine observed crashes and known risk factors to identify appropriate countermeasures. Our analytics team provides comprehensive traffic safety solutions that help communities move towards a vision of zero traffic-related fatalities.
