National Rail Grade Crossing Safety Campaign April 16 – May 12, 2019

NHTSA, in coordination with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), is launching the campaign “Stop. Trains Can’t” to increase public awareness about the dangers around railroad tracks and to reduce deaths and injuries. Motor vehicle crashes at rail grade crossings are avoidable. For more information click here.

 


 

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month
Motorcyclists have the same rights and privileges as any other motor vehicle operator on the road. NHTSA’s three major campaigns include:

  • Motorist Awareness of Motorcycles, focusing on helping motorists understand standard motorcycle driving behaviors and to learn how to drive safely around motorcycles.
  • Share the Road, focusing on promoting motorcyclist awareness and safety to both motorcycle riders and motor vehicle drivers.
  • Stop Impaired Riding, focusing on saving lives of those who make the wrong choice to drink and ride.

Use these materials and resources to promote motorcycle safety in your community.

 

National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization is May 20 - June 2, 2019
In 2017 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 14,955 lives and could have saved an additional 2,549 people if they had been wearing seat belts. Seat belts have been proven to be one of the best ways to save your life in a crash. Yet many still don’t buckle up. Worse still, not wearing a seat belt is a habit that will pass on to impressionable youth, who in turn will think it’s safe to not buckle up. The Click It or Ticket campaign focuses on safety education, strong laws, and law enforcement officers saving lives. Read more here.

Speed Limit Increases are Tied to 37,000 Deaths Over 25 years

Rising speed limits over the past 25 years have cost nearly 37,000 lives, including more than 1,900 in 2017 alone, a new study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows. IIHS found that a 5 mph increase in the maximum speed limit was associated with an 8 percent increase in the fatality rate on interstates and freeways. For the full article click here.

 

Fatal Pedestrian Crashes Exceed Murder Rate in Fairfax County, Virginia
Officials in Fairfax County, Virginia, where the death rate for pedestrians exceeds the murder rate, are asking people to not be distracted while on the road. Local leaders are helping to launch the region’s spring “Street Smart” campaign to help prevent cyclists and pedestrians from being killed by drivers on D.C.-area roadways. “The combination of education, and advertising, and enforcement have shown to change behavior over the years for the better,” said John Saunders, director of the Virginia Highway Safety Office.

U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association National Tire Safety Week May 20-27, 2019
This initiative educates motorists about tire care, safety and maintenance, including the potential dangers of unsafe used tires. “We are urging motorists, including first-time drivers, to “Know Your Roll” before taking to the roads this Memorial Day and in advance of the busy summer travel season,’ said Anne Forristall Luke, president and CEO of USTMA. “Just like fastening your seatbelt – an action that’s become synonymous with safety, proper tire care and maintenance also need to be top of mind when it comes to ensuring the safety of all motorists on the road,” said Luke. For the full article click here.

As a reminder, ADTSEA with the assistance of Michelin developed a tire safety lesson plan, PowerPoint and slides. This can be found by clicking here
