Recommendations of the Safe System Consortium

The Safe System approach is built on the premise that transportation-related death and injury are unacceptable and avoidable. Importantly, a Safe System can be implemented in ways that help address structural and institutional racism by correcting for prior under investments in historically marginalized communities and closing gaps in safety between areas that have been well resourced and those that have been underserved.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research & Policy and the Institute of Transportation Engineers are pleased to share the Recommendations of the Safe System Consortium through an online event on Tuesday, May 11 at 2 p.m. EDT. 

Congressman Anthony Brown (MD-04), a member of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, shared opening remarks. Mark Rosekind, PhD, the former administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a Distinguished Policy Scholar in the Department of Health Policy and Management, moderated a panel discussion with Meghan Mitman, AICP, Chair of the Institute of Transportation Engineers Safety Council; Jamila Porter, DrPH, Director of Resilient Communities with the Big Cities Health Coalition; and Robert Wunderlich, PE, Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
