Vulnerable Road User Safety Assessment (VRUSA) Survey

2024-06-08T12:00:00Z 2024-08-19T03:59:00Z Vulnerable Road User Safety Assessment (VRUSA) Survey

MDOT is committed and actively working to create safer roadways for our road users. Although Michigan’s Vulnerable Road User Safety Assessment (VRUSA) was completed in 2023 in accordance with the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, MDOT continues to look for opportunities to engage and obtain feedback and continue VRU research. You are an essential partner in enhancing safety for vulnerable road users (VRUs) across the state.

Every year, VRUs are killed or seriously injured on Michigan roads at a rate faster than other road users. With recognition of the importance of safe travel for all, especially VRUs like pedestrians and bicyclists, MDOT and statewide partners have begun to transition to the Safe System Approach (SSA). The SSA represents an evolutionary step in addressing roadway safety as it is human-centered. The SSA is founded on the principle that all humans make mistakes and that human bodies have a limited ability to tolerate crash impacts. It is a redundant system that strives to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries by reducing risks and anticipating mistakes.

The VRUSA aims to improve understanding of the conditions and behaviors present in fatal and serious injury crashes involving VRUs. VRUs include anyone walking, biking or rolling by nonmotorized forms of transportation on public roads or on foot in work zones.

By completing the survey, you can help MDOT fulfill our goal of reducing the frequency, severity and ultimately eliminating these crashes.
