Pedestrian traffic control in public streets during temporary activities



Course Description

Half day/4 hours; Classroom Course; Closed or Co-sponsored Option*

In several cities, it is common to use individuals to control pedestrian traffic on public streets during special events and other temporary activities. Often, these individuals (retired law enforcement officers, etc.) do not have the necessary training to perform this temporary traffic control function safely and within the standards and guidelines contained in the MUTCD.

This course is intended to fill this void to ensure the continuity and consistency of pedestrian and traffic management services, and will provide individuals responsible for managing pedestrian traffic on public streets with the training they need for the safe and efficient movement of pedestrians as well as their own safety.

*This course is a closed or co-sponsored option, available for hosting or scheduling by interested organizations and companies. If no training classes are available at this time, contact ATSSA at 800-272-8772 or email training@atssa.com to schedule a training class in your area.
