Part of: Highway Safety Forum: Advancing Road Transportation Safety Through Better Communication and Cooperation Among the Disciplines


The problem of creating a safe environment for the users of our highway system has been with us almost since the invention of the motor vehicle. Generally accepted throughout the field are three key subsystems: the driver (the hardest one to influence or control), the vehicle, and the roadway. The purpose of this Forum is to examine, in detail, how we in eight different areas communicate or do not communicate with each other, vital information from within the subsystem in which we are working. The eight areas under examination are: licensing, enforcement, information systems, human factors, vehicle design, highway design, highway maintenance, and emergency medical services.
