FHWA peer exchange maps new ways to roadway safety

Each year, American roads take almost six times the number of lives lost during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the National Safety Council, the 2016 death toll alone on public roads crossed 40,000.  These are not mere statistics; these are our neighbors, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, co-workers and friends.  The deaths are linked to human error, bad roads, technology-distracted drivers and drivers impaired by drugs and alcohol.

Cindy Bobbitt, County Commissioner from Grant County Oklahoma said, “A sharp increase in roadway deaths and serious injuries was the impetus for dozens of National Association of Counties (NACo) leaders and others transportation leaders from across the nation to come together in Greenville County, S.C. for a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored Roadway Safety Peer Exchange.”
