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 2021-2022 MWL. Adopting
