On October 1. 2020, Scott Middleton and Adam Blair presented a poster titled “Measuring Road Safety in Diverse Rural Environments” at the 3rd National Summit on Rural Road Safety, which was held virtually from September 30 to October 1, 2020. The summit is an important national forum for engaging a wide variety of stakeholders and raising awareness on critical rural road safety issues, including non-occupant protection, speeding, and impaired and distracted driving.

EBP’s poster was presented as part of the session “– How to Make Rural Roads Safe for Everyone: Quantifying Rural Road Safety.” The content of the poster was drawn from the EBP’s study for the Federal Highway Administration on Emerging Technologies and Opportunities for Improved Mobility and Safety in Rural Areas, which investigated how new transportation options such as shared mobility and connected and automated vehicles could be leveraged to meet the needs of rural environments. Through this work, EBP has analyzed the relationship between socioeconomics, infrastructure, travel behavior, and safety and mobility outcomes in different types of rural areas.
