This week, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced its list of the key safety issues impacting American roads today, which the NTSB has labeled its “Most Wanted List.” These are ten (10) changes deemed by the federal agency in charge of transportation issues as being the most important for government and industry to make happen in order to make roadways safer for all of us.
The NTSB 2011 Most Wanted List of Safety Issues
Each year, the NTSB issues its “Most Wanted List” and it’s been doing this successfully since 1990. However, the 2011 version does change things: this year’s list has a new design and the list itself is more broadly-based.
The issues that have made the NTSA 2011 Most Wanted List are as follows, click on the link for detailed discussion of the NTSA’s particular concerns on that topic:
* Promote pilot and air traffic controller professionalism
* Address human fatigue
* Promote teen driving safety
* Improve general aviation safety
* Improve motorcycle safety
* Require safety management systems
* Improve runway safety
* Address alcohol-impaired driving
* Improve bus occupant safety
* Require image and onboard data recorders
These issues are extremely important for Americans today. These are real dangers that are causing serious injury and death in the United States, events that we discuss routinely here on this blog (e.g., bus accidents, recorders, etc.) and which Kenneth J. Allen & Associates face each day, having made the seeking of justice for injury victims and their loved ones our life’s work.
Please take the time to review the NTSA Most Wanted List, and consider its impact upon your daily life: can you or your loved ones be safer on the road?
