Transplex Safety Web Series – Opening Session and Safe Vehicles
October 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The October 2021 Safety Web Series is focused on the elements of the Safe System Approach to eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on our roadways. As we shift our thinking about traditional safety measures to an all-inclusive view of the roadway and the user, we must be proactive and view safety as a shared responsibility.
We invite you to join us every Friday in October for a series of webinars focused on the five elements of the Safe System approach: Safe Vehicles, Safe Road Users, Safe Roads, Safe Speeds, and Post-crash Care. We will hear from a dynamic group of policy and industry professionals leading the way for a comprehensive planning and design approach that creates a safe transportation system for all users.
Each webinar offers 1.5 certification maintenance credits for AICP members and 1.5 Professional Development Hours for Engineers. FDOT employees who register and initiate the webinar through learning Curve will be able to access their certificates in Learning Curve upon completion of the live webinar and confirmation of attendance. Non-FDOT employees will have an opportunity to request a certificate be sent via email after the live webinar.
Opening Session and Safe Vehicles
Join us for opening remarks from FDOT District 7 Secretary David Gwynn as he shares his perspective on safety, and how Safety plays a lead role in the Department’s Vital Few. To set up the five-webinar series, Mark Doctor, FHWA will share an overview of the Safe System approach and what this means for planning, engineering, and policies in Florida.
In the United States, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of injury and death killing over 100 people every day. Safe Vehicles is recognized by the Safe System Approach to transportation safety as one of the five elements to a comprehensive approach to transportation safety. Join the Safe Vehicle panelists to learn how traditional and emerging automotive strategies and technologies aim to deliver greater safety benefits to help prevent these injuries and deaths. Panelists will also discuss the future of safety for fully automated cars and trucks, both inside and out.
