The nationwide seat belt use rate was 90.4% in 2021. What is it going to take to get that remaining 9.6% of motor vehicle occupants to buckle up, especially as new NHTSA data indicate that unrestrained vehicle occupant fatalities increased 3% last year and remain above pre-pandemic levels? Innovative programs are needed to address this pervasive issue and make sure everyone is properly restrained in a seat belt or child safety seat. In this pre-GHSA 2022 Annual Meeting webinar, sponsored by the Auto Glass Safety Council, experts from public health, community organizations, the private sector and law enforcement will share what approaches they’re taking to address this lifesaving issue.
GHSA 2022 Annual Meeting
September 17–21, 2022
Louisville Marriott Downtown
Join colleagues and partners from across the country in Derby City this September as we redefine possible in traffic safety.
General sessions will consider the unique safety needs and opportunities in rural communities, how automated vehicles continue to impact driver behavior, the role of behavioral safety in the Safe System approach and what states can do to reduce distracted driving. Breakout workshops will dive into an array of topics, including engaging underserved communities and partners, alcohol- and drug-impaired driving, speeding, micromobility, innovative communications campaigns, pedestrians and bicyclists, and teen and older driver safety.
Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations about trends, resources and new ideas, and leave with a fresh perspective on how to redefine possible for the communities you serve. The meeting also provides sponsorship, partnership and exhibit opportunities to help your organization interact with key U.S. highway safety leaders and decision-makers.
