NTSB issues 'Most Wanted List'

GasBuddy Blog -- We all want our daily commute to be safe and uneventful. We want to reach our travel destinations without incident and at an affordable cost. But whether we'll be able to do that in the future is closely tied to how government manages your federal, state and local tax dollars... and where they spend.

That's why the National Transportation Safety Board identified a list of its Top 10 Transportation Challenges for 2013.

Six of the top 10 NTSB priorities focus on highway travel where most transportation fatalities occur, and the six include the number one killer on the list: substance-impaired driving.

According to NTSB, the new list of top advocacy priorities calls for ending distraction in all modes of travel...

substance impaired driving soon will be overtaken by device impaired drivers (i.e. texting while driving).

I agree with PithyOpiner.

And, just how are they going to end "distraction in all modes of travel?"
The statement is so broad, it just invites the Federal Governemnet to control more of what we do. Drinking 16oz sodas in you car may be next.

Well, it certainly would be nice to have substance related crashes significantly drop, but unfortunately our society doesn't seem to take it too seriously about driving and drinking. Between DWI's and distracted driving (phone related), those two alone makeup for tens of thousands of accidents across the U.S. per month! It would be nice to see it drop.

Good list. A good start would be all new drivers have to attend an approved driving school, alot of the present drivers should also attend.

How about they focus on 1 thing and do it well. Then attack another. Also when you set goals you have to set measurable goals that are attainable. None of these are quantifiable or measurable. So lets take #9 as a for instance. Before writing the goal they need to determine what makes general aviation unsafe, set a list of priorities, determine how to measure effectiveness and make a plan. In general aviation they may find that most accidents are pilot error. Then find that most pilot error is occurs on landing. So the plan might be to require a certain number of hours for each pilot practicing touch and gos with an instruction. At the end of a specified period you compare current accident rate with past rates and accident rates between pilots who have completed the training and those who have not.

Make the fines a part of the officers pay, like a bounty, and they will enforce the laws. They seem to turn a blind eye beleiving that this is a victimless crime. It will allow them to boost their pays, and make the streets safer and may also cut down on the amount of overtime that they all put in to make extra money.
