Free Webinar: Road Mobility, Technology & Safety: Next 20 Years with David Zipper

The American National Safety Council (NSC) presents a report commissioned last year considering the
potential evolution of transportation over the next 20 years and its implications for traffic safety in urban areas.

Date: Tuesday July 26, 2022

The United States is facing a national crisis. Roadway fatalities are at a 16-year high, with preliminary NSC data showing more than 46,000 people died on U.S. roads in 2021. NSC estimates 462 more may die in preventable crashes over the upcoming Independence Day Weekend alone. Vulnerable road users, those who are walking, biking or are otherwise outside a vehicle, are dying at faster rates. Communities of color and low-income communities also experience higher rates of fatalities and are over-represented in these data. To reverse these deadly trends, NSC seeks to leverage research, knowledge and passion for this topic to find new solutions and turn the tide on traffic violence.

Recognizing these needs, and with funding from Allstate, NSC commissioned this new report in 2021 from lead author David Zipper, a Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School with a background in both technology and local government, and the author of more than 75 articles about cities, transportation and technology. This report examines the history of mobility safety and how it can help identify trends that will define mobility over the next two decades.

This report review  is intended to provide research-based insights to inform future efforts and serve as a guidebook for those whose work intersects with traffic safety. This webinar will feature David Zipper and key partners in traffic safety to discuss where we go from here.
