Safe Roads and Streets for All, will be such wonderful progress. Excited to see this funding filtering into the areas that are often neglected.
The U.N.. and WHO recognized the global crash and fatality rates as a 'pandemic' over a decade ago. A dozen economically capable countries have reduced the percapita crash rates significantly through informational campaigns social programs and a focus on individual driver preparedness and competence as well as the tech and infrastructure. The U.S. trails these dozen other countries. In the U.S. the driver test is a cursory chore thought as adequate for nearly a lifetime of driving. Will there be any focus on driver evaluation and preparedness, competence?
Thanks for tying importance of equity in this work, including managing speeds.
What role is seen for PAY HOW YOU DRIVE AUTO INSURANCE that uses the black box recorder on all post-1996 vehicles sets drivers' insurance rates according to how safely they drive (or don't) -- which is also how fuel- and carbon-efficiently they drive? PHYD Insurance is good for safety, decarbonization, insurance-cost equity, reduced motorist-law enforcement interaction, and more!
Thank you Deputy Secretary for your leadership!
The greater Portland region really appreciates the leadership around safety. Thank you!
Thank you for all of this leadership and work.
speaker said the 94% human error stat was a myth - can he elaborate on this point?
here's one account of Jennifer Homendy on the 94% figure: https://usa.streetsblog.org/2022/01/31/it-aint-94-percent-ntsb-chair-jennifer-homendy-on-the-role-of-human-error-in-car-crashes/
thank you all fro www.piarc.org
are all presentations going to be available?

Will there be any focus on the individual driver/operator and their mindfulness and abilities in this, our most daily hazardous activity? With these 6+million crashes per year, the forensics can identify only several causes among the variables of time, place and conditions . . and behavior. Education and training, evaluations and certification are tools that are accepted in most forms of personal expertise. This has not been applied to drivers.
Has there been any analysis of how weaponizing pickups with front brush / grill guards changes crash impact forces?
Thanks Catherine! April Rai, President & CEO is working directly the Coalition. Thank you!

snowy day? sorry but nice!
to Craig's point much earlier in chat about truck add-ons changing crash impact forces, I would also like to add bumper heights/lifting vehicles, especially heavy trucks. existing laws regarding this don't seem to be enforced anywhere. a new car design to reduce the impact of crash force on a human body don't mean much if the owner can lift the truck by a foot without impunity.
What are you doing to respond to the road inequities being pointed out by Jonathan at @Pedestriandignity?
The car industry's profit-making with oversized show pickup trucks that are used for ego and not real work have been a growing problem since the celebrated Bob Lutz championed this business model a couple of decades ago.
Please stop saying "excessive speed". All speeding is dangerous and speed itself is a danger. "Excessive" speed implies that some speeding acceptable and results in crash data underestimating speed as a factor in crashes. (This isn't directed just at the current speaker. Way too many DOT-ers and police officers use this language.)
Are the delineator systems in Greenville, NC portable or permanent installations?
Congratulations! Could you share that publication? Would love to start a task force in Durham, nc
As an Eastern North Carolinian (New Bern Native), I really enjoyed your presentation. I have tons of friends and family members that went to ECU. Great job!
Thanks Ellen for sharing your work and findings! It was really interesting to learn about your work on the ground.
Thank you all for the wonderful presentations! I loved seeing all the pictures and examples of what's been working in your various communities.
Can Gavin elaborate on the changes being made to ped signal timing? Are you making signal cycle lengths longer overall? Moving "walk" seconds into "don't walk"? Other?
I LOVED THIS! Very informative!
the US compared to other countries: it seems that too often politicians are not willing to support the most effective means - political suicide. thanks state DOTs for doing what you can.

I am still thinking about what Ellen said about motorists entering the turning lane too early. I think that we have a race to be first, in North Carolina and we need to change that urge.
thank you! it is wery informative for our Active Traffic Safety program.!
Thanks everyone for great presentations!
Thank you all!
