A System Approach to Traffic Safety, NTSB MWL Roundtable May 20, 2021

A System Approach to Traffic Safety, NTSB MWL Roundtable May 20, 2021

Our roadways were designed to move motor vehicles safely and efficiently. They often do not fully meet the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists-our vulnerable road users (VRUs). As a result, we are seeing increasing dangers to this population and too many accidents involving vehicles and VRUs.

We must use a Safe System approach to better protect VRUs and ensure safe roads for all. A Safe System addresses all aspects of traffic safety: road users, vehicles, speeds, roads, and post crash care. We must make better safety investments, from road treatments, vehicle design, and collision-avoidance systems to strong traffic safety laws and robust education efforts to mitigate injury risks for all road users.

Unlike motor vehicles, VRUs lack an external structure to protect them when crashes occur, and they're more likely to suffer a serious injury or even death. Proven, effective countermeasures are being underused at the federal, state, and local levels to protect pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. We have long been concerned with the threat to VRUs. In 2018 and 2019, we published three reports on the risks to this vulnerable population and issued more than 30 new recommendations focused on reducing VRU traffic deaths.

Mid-Air Collision, Ketchikan, AK, May 13, 2019, NTSB Board Meeting

Mid-Air Collision, Ketchikan, AK, May 13, 2019, NTSB Board Meeting

The National Transportation Safety Board announced its intent to hold a public board meeting April 20, 2021, 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, to determine the probable cause of a fatal midair collision involving two air tour operators in Alaska.

On May 13, 2019, a float-equipped de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver and a float-equipped de Havilland DHC-3 Turbine Otter collided in flight about eight miles northeast of Ketchikan, Alaska. The DHC-2 pilot and four passengers suffered fatal injuries; the DHC-3 pilot suffered minor injuries, nine passengers were seriously injured, and one passenger suffered fatal injuries.

The NTSB’s five-member board will vote on the findings, probable cause and recommendations as well as any changes to the draft final report.

In keeping with established federal and local social distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, while also ensuring the NTSB’s compliance with the Government in the Sunshine Act, the board meeting for this event will be webcast to the public, with the board members and investigative staff meeting virtually. There will be no physical gathering to facilitate the board meeting.

All audio is courtesy: National Transportation Safety Board.  The audio was cleaned up the best I could manage and meeting breaks removed.

Revenue Passenger-Carrying Operations: NTSB Board Meeting 91

The National Transportation Safety Board held a public board meeting on March 23, 2021, 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, to consider a draft report on recommendations for the implementation of stricter regulatory requirements for some types of revenue passenger-carrying general aviation operations. The NTSB has a long history of concerns about the safety of various revenue passenger-carrying operations, including sightseeing flights conducted in hot air balloons, helicopters, and other aircraft and parachute jump flights. These operations are not subject to the same maintenance, airworthiness, and operational requirements as other commercial flight operations. The five-member board considered the need for broader oversight and additional safety requirements for certain types of revenue passenger-carrying general aviation operations. All audio is courtesy: National Transportation Safety Board.  The audio was cleaned up and meeting breaks removed.
