National Roadway Safety Strategy – ITS America Response

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) released its National Roadway Safety Strategy (NRSS) in January 2022, adopting a Safe System Approach and describing major actions USDOT will take to meaningfully improve transportation safety in five key categories – safer people, safer roads, safer vehicles, safer speeds, and post-crash care. The Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) appreciates USDOT’s focus on improving the safety of our nation’s transportation system and supports many of the Department’s planned actions described in the report. However, we also envision a greater role for transportation technology to play in improving the safety of our transportation system.
