Safety


ResilienTU: 2021-22
The University of Tulsa is focused on your health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 public health crisis. TU community members should carefully read and review TU health resources in order to take necessary health and safety precautions and engage in daily wellness checks. We encourage our faculty, staff, and students to obtain information from Hurricane Health Center, community health care providers, state health authorities and the CDC’s COVID-19 website.

Campus Safety Measures

 
In 2019, speeding was a contributing factor in 26% of all traffic fatalities. Speed also affects your safety even when you are driving at the speed limit but too fast for road conditions, such as during bad weather, when a road is under repair, or in an area at night that isn’t well lit.
 
According to the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHA) Institute of Transportation Engineers, traffic calming refers to measures designed to reduce traffic speed and accident numbers, discourage motorists from cutting through residential areas, and promote pedestrian and cycle use.

Traffic calming measures can include physical changes to streets, such as roundabouts, speed humps, and bulb-outs. Other measures affect how drivers perceive the roadway (e.g., painting lines on the road to make lanes appear narrower or planting trees or shrubs along roads). Traffic calming can also include driver education and speed limit enforcement programs.
