As the Safe System approach—which aims to eliminate fatal and serious injuries—takes hold as a commonly accepted best practice in the quest for Vision Zero, early adopters are learning what strategies and tools work best, and which are harder to implement and build consensus around. This conversation circle will offer an opportunity to hear reflections from state and national leaders in Safe System and then open the discussion to attendees to share their experiences and ask for input on their goals and challenges.
- Understand the core principles and key elements of the Safe System approach and how it differs from the traditional approach to safety
- Learn opportunities for applying the Safe System approach to state-level highway safety improvement programs and strategic highway safety plans
- Appreciate opportunities to institutionalize the Safe System approach into every-day transportation planning and engineering practice such as through transportation impact assessment
