NTSB Unveils its 2021 – 2022 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements

4/6/2021

​WASHINGTON (April 6, 2021) — The National Transportation Safety Board finalized its 2021 – 2022 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements during a board meeting held Tuesday. The five-member board voted to include 10 items in the 2021-2022 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements:

  • Require and Verify the Effectiveness of Safety Management Systems in All Revenue Passenger Carrying Aviation Operations

  • Prevent Alcohol and other Drug Impaired Driving

  • Require Collision Avoidance and Connected Vehicle Technologies on All Vehicles

  • Eliminate Distracted Driving

  • Implement a Comprehensive Strategy to Eliminate Speeding-Related Crashes

  • Install Crash Resistant Recorders and Establish Flight Data Monitoring Programs

  • Protect Vulnerable Road Users through a Safe System Approach

  • Improve Pipeline Leak Detection and Mitigation

  • Improve Rail Worker Safety (page/content under development)

  • Improve Passenger and Fishing Vessel Safety (page/content under development)

Since 1990 the NTSB has used its Most Wanted List as the principal advocacy tool to build support for the implementation of NTSB-issued safety recommendations associated with the list. “Board members of the NTSB and our advocacy team continuously seek opportunities to communicate about items on our Most Wanted List,” said NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt. “As we begin advocacy efforts for the 2021 – 2022 MWL, we call upon our advocacy partners to amplify our safety messages and help us bring about the safety improvements that will make transportation safer for us all. The 2021 – 2022 MWL draws attention to more than 100 safety recommendations associated with the 10 items on the list. These recommendations, if implemented, can save lives, reduce the number and severity of injuries and prevent transportation accidents and crashes. The 2021-2022 MWL features 10 mode-specific safety improvements, unlike previous lists that featured 10 broad, multi-modal safety issues tied to hundreds of recommendations.

Health & Safety Day is a part of Long Island Mobility Week, a week-long celebration where villages, towns, cities, counties and other organizations are invited to showcase their commitment to clean and sustainable transportation options. (longislandmobilityweek.org)


September 20 2020

Health & Safety Day promoted healthy behaviors and lifestyle changes and included three components: Walk with a Doc, Stony Brook’s amazing Mobile Mammography van and Family Yoga with Kelly Peckholdt of Positions Dance Studio. The New York Coalition for Transportation Safety (NYCTS ) was joined by the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition, Good Samaritan Hospital trauma center volunteers and the Mobility Week team from Transit Solutions.


Dr. Puneet Gandotra of Northwell Health’s Southside Cardiology kicked off the walk with notes on keeping your heart healthy especially during the pandemic. Mark Hoffacker of New York Coalition for Transportation Safety - NYCTS then led our group of 40 or so walkers from the Conklin House, past the LIRR Babylon Station and up and around Argyle Lake, pointing out pedestrian safety tips along the way. The Stony Brook Hospital mobile mammography van offered state-of-the-art 3D mammographies right on site and several local families got their zen on out on the Conklin House green during Family Yoga. Many thanks to Conklin House Volunteer Kym Turet for helping at this event.

Stay tuned for more healthy educational programs at the Conklin House including our upcoming Blood Drive!
