Safety & Security

Issues & Modes / Safety & Security

The first goal of any transportation agency is safety. Yet almost 40,000 Americans die on the transportation system every year. New proposals for safer streets, better vehicle design, and crash avoidance technology are reshaping the narrative around safety in an effort to reverse the downward trend of transportation safety. Governments are also concerned about the security of the system. Terrorism, hacking, and international affairs can threaten the transportation systems that support the national economy.
