Shifting Narratives to Prevent Bicyclist and Pedestrian Deaths
August 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFREE
As part of the City of Orlando’s continued commitment to the Vision Zero mission of eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries, you are invited and encouraged to attend: Shifting Narratives to Prevent Bicyclist and Pedestrian Deaths.
The University of South Florida’s Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) was awarded a Road to Zero grant from the National Safety Council to host virtual workshops across the State of Florida, working to prevent bicyclist and pedestrian deaths with a new approach.
This 60-minute virtual workshop for Orlando media, public information officers, law enforcement, transportation professionals and citizen advocates will focus on the language used when reporting crashes and shifting the narrative away from victim-blaming, within the context of a larger discussion about our shared responsibility for traffic safety. The workshop will be facilitated by CUTR researchers Julie Bond, MPA and Dr. Erin Scheffels, PHD.
