Administration Commits to Proven Best Practices in USDOT’s National Roadway Safety Strategy
NACTO applauds USDOT for its bold goal of zero deaths on America’s roads, and for committing to reorienting the department around a proven safe systems approach to safety.
These promising commitments include:
“This Administration knows first-hand the physical, economic, and emotional impact of traffic violence on Americans. While many of the specifics of these commitments will be forthcoming, this safety strategy shows that safety at USDOT is not just a buzzword, but a true commitment to stemming this crisis through redesigned streets, safer speed limits, and better vehicle design,” said Janette Sadik-Khan, NACTO Chair.
“USDOT’s National Roadway Safety Strategy is both a recognition of the severity of the United States’ traffic safety crisis and a commitment to taking long-overdue steps to stem the extraordinary number of people killed on our nation’s roadways. America’s cities stand ready to work with USDOT to achieve the critical–and only acceptable–goal of zero fatalities on our roadways,” said Corinne Kisner, NACTO Executive Director.
