California: After Spate of Deaths, Oakland DOT Talks Rapid Response (Vision Zero Watch)

“We’re developing a process to quickly mobilize,” said Susan Kattchee with OakDOT’s Safe Streets Division, during a presentation at the meeting on the city’s ‘Rapid Resopnse’ program. The idea is to have a plan and hardware in place, such as bollards and paint, ready to go in and update a location if a collision is deemed the fault of bad or outdated infrastructure. That could be as simple as repainting a crosswalk or replacing a sign, or adding bollards. “We have to figure out how to incorporate this process with everything else on our plate.”
