2021-2023 Most Wanted List

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The NTSB’s Most Wanted List (MWL) highlights transportation safety improvements needed now to​ prevent accidents, reduce injuries, and save lives. We use the list to focus our advocacy efforts during the current MWL cycle.

The NTSB urges lawmakers, industry, advocacy and community organizations, and every American to learn more about what they can do to implement ​ and champion the 2021-2023 MWL. Adopting NTSB safety recommendations associated with these safety ​​​​​items will save lives.

​ ​​​​​Read ​our ​​​​​evaluation of Department of Transportation's actions​ on MWL recommendations​​.​​​

​The NTSB Board extended the current MWL an additional year and approved transitioning to a 3-year cycle. This will provide more time to accomplish the goals on the MWL and for regulators and others to implement MWL-related recommendations. ​
