NTSB TO ANNOUNCE MOST WANTED LIST OF TRANSPORTATION SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS
The good news is that traffic accidents are on a decline. However, there were still in excess of 32,000 traffic fatalities last year in Los Angeles and throughout the United States. According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), fatalities from car accidents are the tenth leading cause of death. Additionally, they are the leading cause of death for American youth.
In June 2011, the NTSB will announce a new Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements. It is anticipated that the NTSB will put a spotlight on certain safety issues. This follows a 2-day forum on truck and bus safety that was held by the NTSB in May 2011.
