Safe Speeds: Eliminating Speeding-Related Crashes

​​​In this second roundtable of our Safe System Series, a panel of leading experts will discuss eliminating speeding-related crashes through a Safe System Approach. Early estimates of 2020 crash data should serve as an alarm that more needs to be done to eliminate the speeding-related deaths and injuries on our roadways.

The NTSB 2017 Safety Study “Reducing Speeding-Related Crashes involving Passenger Vehicles” explored the safe system approach as an effective strategy to eliminate speeding and states: “It (the safe system) recognizes that the responsibility for crash prevention resides not only with drivers, but also with all stakeholders of the road system. These include those who design, manage, and use the road; those who set and enforce the speed limit; and those who provide emergency response.”

This roundtable will explore transitioning to a safe system approach to address speeding related crashes.

Join Member Homendy, NTSB staff, government and industry representatives, and advocates as we explore why the integrative Safe System Approach is needed to save lives.
