Distractions, fatigue and impairment all appear on the Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements 2019-2010, unveiled this week by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
The list identifies the top safety improvements that can be made across all transport modes to prevent incidents, minimize injuries and save lives.
“The Most Wanted List is our road map from lessons learned to lives saved,” stated the NTSB. “We urge lawmakers, industry, and every American to learn more about what they can do to implement and champion these critical safety improvements.”
In relation to highway transportation (as well as other forms of transportation), the list includes:
- Eliminate distractions
- Reduce fatigue-related incidents
- End alcohol and other drug impairment
- Increase implementation of collision avoidance systems in all new highway vehicles
- Implement a comprehensive strategy to reduce speeding-related crashes
