Safety Center Webinar Series

The National Center for Rural Road Safety (Safety Center) will host a FREE, 1-1.5 hour webinar series monthly.

November 2017 #1 – Achieving Safety Results by Addressing Behavioral Issues (Wednesday, November 15th from 11:00 AM-12:30 PM Mountain/1:00-2:30 PM Eastern)

Rural transportation agencies are increasingly addressing safety in their planning areas and at a minimum, have usually adopted the State’s zero deaths concept to frame their transportation safety activities. To achieve this vision, planners identify infrastructure solutions, but behavioral concerns, such as distraction, impairment, and unbelted drivers/occupants are also major issues in rural regions. This webinar will provide participants with information and resources on the role they can play to drive down fatalities and serious injuries through collaboration across the 4E’s, behavioral funding sources, and education campaigns.

December 2017 – The Culture of the Swedish Vision Zero (Tuesday, December 12th from 9:00 AM-10:30 AM Mountain/11:00 AM-12:30 PM Eastern)

Vision Zero describes a road safety approach that focuses on eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries. There is growing interest in this approach, both in the U.S. and internationally. This webinar will provide an overview of Vision Zero implementation efforts in Sweden.

Sweden has a long tradition of systematic road safety work, of considering road traffic injuries as a public health problem, and of addressing these issues at the national government level. In October 1997, the Swedish Parliament formally adopted Vision Zero as a new long-term goal and direction in road traffic safety work. Vision Zero aims influence road safety work at all levels: guiding direct efforts to make the infrastructure safer, as well as indirectly influencing the institutional preconditions and approaches (culture) that encourage ongoing action by stakeholders to increase the safety of the road transport system. Vision Zero differs from a more traditional road safety policy with regard to problem formulation, its view on responsibility, its requirements for the safety of road users, and the ultimate objective of road safety work. This presentation will provide an overview of the tenets of Vision Zero, summarize the implementation efforts in Sweden, and discuss potential relevance to U.S. efforts. To register, click here.
