Improving Rural Road Safety with the Safe System Approach 6-part webinar series
No doubt you have been hearing the terms Safe System Approach and Traffic Safety Culture over the past few years, but are you also wondering:
- how to explain these terms to your peers and superiors?
- how these terms apply to your agency?
- how they fit with the work you do everyday?
- how they can help improve safety on a rural road?
If so, then this 6-part series is for you! The Improving Rural Road Safety with the Safe System Approach 6-part webinar series will explore how a Safe System Approach (SSA) can be applied to rural areas, discuss strategies rural areas are already using that fit within a SSA, and identify additional SSA techniques that can be applied to improve rural road safety.
