TRB conducted a webinar on Thursday, February 4, 2016 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that discussed ways to interpret and respond to the high rates of fatalities and severe injuries among American Indians from crashes. This webinar shared results from a study being conducted in collaboration with several tribal governments in Minnesota, which included findings about best practices, successful interventions, and other lessons learned about policies and management strategies to address those risks effectively and reduce harm.
