This meeting's topic is safe senior mobility. Each RSTF meeting focuses on a critical road safety issue facing the Delaware Valley region. These topics are selected using a data driven process that draws on best practices from the state and federal DOTs. This meeting will feature presentations on safe senior mobility. Following the presentations, RSTF members will break into groups to brainstorm ways to address safe senior mobility in the region. Lunch is provided for attendees at the conclusion of the meeting.
Established in September 2005, the Regional Safety Task Force brings together a multi-disciplinary group of professionals to identify safety goals, strategies and resources.
