The National Center for Rural Road Safety (Rural Safety Center) is hosting a FREE, 1.5-hour online webinar entitled Safe Vehicles.

This webinar will be held Wednesday, September 29, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Mountain/1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern.

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.

In Part 3 of the series, we will focus on the Safe Vehicle Element through the lens of actions agencies can take. First, we will look at what rural agencies can do to prepare for automated, connected, and electric vehicles; then we will explore examples of agencies prioritizing safety in their own vehicles safer. The examples will include Colorado Department of Transportation’s (DOT) autonomous attenuator truck being used for rural road painting operations and the Missouri DOT statewide implementation of their real-time digital warning equipment/technology on over 500 fleet vehicles at the DOT.

Additional webinars will include Part 4: Safe Speeds (October), Part 5: Safe Roads (November), and Part 6: Post-Crash Care (December).
