About the Webinar

In this webinar, we spoke about the launch of the Replica Safe Streets Planner, a new tool that combines active transportation and driving event data to allow agencies to map existing conditions, analyze specific corridors, and generate their own high-conflict corridors and action plans.

Following the demo, we sat down with Karina Ricks from Cityfi and Gregory Francese from the City of Hoboken to talk about how their organizations are leading the way in designing for safety. Karina brought her experience at Pittsburgh DOT, DDOT, and FTA to the table. She highlighted her international, city, federal, and private sector experience to bring together government, community, and companies in collaborations that advance core values of equity, safety, climate preservation, and economic growth. Gregory Francese, a Transportation Planner at the City of Hoboken, spoke about how Hoboken has become a nationwide leader in designing safe streets.
