By Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (other events)

Wednesday, October 14 2020 3:00 PM 4:30 PM

This meeting will continue the RSTF’s focus on traffic safety culture, looking at the role of the law in particular. Each RSTF meeting focuses on a critical road safety issue facing the Delaware Valley region. In 2020, the RSTF is dedicating our four meetings to the issue of changing traffic safety culture in the region. This meeting will feature presentations on the role of the law in shaping traffic safety culture. Throughout the meeting, RSTF members will brainstorm ways to shift the traffic safety culture in the region.

Established in September 2005, the Regional Safety Task Force brings together a multi-disciplinary group of professionals to identify safety goals, strategies and resources. The goal of the Task Force is to build and maintain effective partnerships with the purpose of reaching zero casualties from crashes in the region.
