VISION ZERO - SAFETY IN SEATTLE Workshop with Dongho Chang

Vision Zero is a global catch-cry, but how do we make it happen in car dominated societies like Australia and the USA?

Dongho Chang, the City Traffic Engineer for Seattle, will share his experience in implementing practical, innovative approaches to road safety at this one-off workshop.

He will also explain the application of Seattle’s leading-edge pedestrian/bicycle safety assessment tool.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Dongho Chang has worked over 25 years in the transportation engineering field focused on improving safety and mobility for all road users.

His work with the City of Seattle has helped establish it as a national leader in designing multi-modal streets. More broadly, Dongho serves on the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, which oversees changes to highly influential engineering standards that dictate how American streets are designed. He is also an active technical member with the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO).

Previously, he was the Traffic Engineer for City of Everett and Area Engineer for Washington State Department of Transportation, where he was responsible for traffic signals group, traffic analysis and channelization review, and traffic safety program.

This small-group event offers a unique opportunity for Australian practitioners to engage with a global expert in a genuine conversation about international lessons and how they can be applied in Australia.
