The primary goal of every transportation department is to make travel safer ---but in 2015 America saw a 7.2% spike in highway deaths—which amounted to 35,092 lives lost. At a Sept. 23, 2016 press conference at USDOT’s Washington headquarters we learned that the number of fatalities is trending even higher this year. David Kim, deputy administrator for the Federal Highway Administration was joined at the press conference, by some of the nation’s top safety advocates to promote an effective tool available to transportation agencies to make roads safer. In this edition of Safety First you’ll learn how this effective high-tech tool is being used both in the US and around the world, to pinpoint problems and identify solutions that are making highways and pedestrian and biking trails safer for the people who use them.
