  • ITS America National Vision Zero Policy

    Safer Streets For All Users

    Far too many vulnerable road users—including people walking and cycling—die on U.S. roads. Motor vehicle crashes killed an estimated 42,060 Americans in 2020, the worst death toll in 14 years.

  • ITS America Equity Policy

    Today’s transportation systems suffer from historic and ongoing inequities embedded in infrastructure, access, and cost. As we explore and fulfill the promise of new technologies, we must embrace and support the paradigm shift occurring in our nation, learn from the lessons of the past, and incorporate transportation equity principles into policy, research, and implementation strategies. This must include explicit consideration of technology’s effects on those least prepared to use it or who face particular barriers to adoption to ensure their safety, access, and mobility are not compromised.
