The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has just released its “Most Wanted” list of transportation safety improvements for 2019 – 2020. While there are no big surprises topping the list, there are some safety improvements that could go a long way toward saving lives if accidents do occur while also limiting the number of accidents that happen on the roads today.

Among the top items on the list are the following:

  • Eliminate driver distractions.
  • Ensure safer shipment of hazardous materials.
  • End impairment related from drugs, alcohol, and other substances.
  • Implement a comprehensive strategy to reduce or crashes resulting from speeding.
  • Reduce fatigue-related traffic accidents.
  • Make collision avoidance technologies more widely available in motor vehicles with the eventual goal of including it in all new vehicles.
  • Make stronger efforts to improve occupant protection protocols in vehicles.
  • Require professional drivers to screen for and treat obstructive sleep apnea.
