On November 15, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET, the National Center for Rural Road Safety will hold the free webinar Achieving Safety Results by Addressing Behavioral Issues.   Rural transportation agencies are increasingly addressing safety in their planning areas and at a minimum, have usually adopted the State’s zero deaths concept to frame their transportation safety activities. To achieve this vision, planners identify infrastructure solutions, but behavioral concerns, such as distraction, impairment, and unbelted drivers/occupants are also major issues in rural regions. This session will provide participants with information and resources on the role they can play to drive down fatalities and serious injuries through collaboration across the 4E’s, behavioral funding sources, and education campaigns.
