Safe System Approach Student Competition 2023 Project Showcase

When: Thursday, October 5, 2023 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

This webinar is led by the ITE Safety Council.

Webinar Description:

In 2021, 42,915 people died on U.S. roads. On January 27, 2022, USDOT released the National Roadway Safety Strategy (NRSS), a comprehensive approach to reduce serious injuries and deaths on the Nation’s highways, roads, and streets. Through the NRSS, USDOT committed to a national vision of zero roadway fatalities and identified priority actions it will take in pursuit of five Safe System objectives: Safer People, Safer Roads, Safer Vehicles, Safer Speeds, and Post-Crash Care. ITE is a strong supporter of the NRSS and will continue to be a strong advocate for use of the Safe System Approach.

ITE believes that our students can play an important role on implementing Safe System Approach strategies to save lives. This video competition, led by the ITE Safety Council, is a professional development opportunity for ITE student chapters interested in learning more about the Safe System Approach, networking with transportation safety professionals, and increasing awareness of Safe System solutions to improve safety in our roads

This webinar includes presentations for the Safe System Approach Student Competition winners. Each presentation discusses a case study that highlights principles and elements of the Safe System Approach.
