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
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.
