TRB is sponsoring the Roadway Safety Culture Summit on August 20-21, 2013, in Washington, D.C. The national summit will explore needs and potential strategies that might help support efforts to advance the roadway safety culture across the United States. The summit will focus on the potential impacts of the safety culture on reducing the number and severity of crashes on our nation’s roadways by examining issues such as social norms theory and the positive community norms framework.
Participants will discuss ways to improve and enhance the highway safety culture amongst road users and transportation agencies responsible for the local, state, and national roadway systems. The event will also showcase health-related initiatives impacted by cultural change as a means to better define the characteristics of the roadway safety culture. The meeting will use breakout sessions and open discussions to identify potential future research needs.
The preliminary agenda is now available.
