Roadway Safety Champions - Our Partners for Zero Traffic Deaths
MONTHLY SPOTLIGHT - January 2022
Special Edition of Public Roads Magazine—The Safe System Approach
This month we are spotlighting a special edition of Public Roads magazine. The Winter 2022 issue highlights the revolutionary Safe System Approach (SSA) that the transportation community is advancing to help reduce deaths and serious injuries on our roads. A principle of the SSA is the shared responsibility we all have to create a safe driving environment for all road users. Our best chance of success is through partnerships and working together towards zero deaths.
In this issue you will:
- Discover how the Safe System Approach is being applied with great success in a growing number of cities, States, and countries to reach zero traffic deaths and serious injuries
- Learn about how the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is making strides to advance the Safe System Approach in safety funding, planning, and programs, including strategic highway safety plans, intersections, and speed management
- Learn about how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is integrating the Safe System Approach into road user education, safe vehicle technology, and post-crash care
- Be inspired to advance the Safe System Approach in your community to reach zero deaths and serious injuries
This special edition is available on the Public Roads website.
