Description:
Traffic Safety with an Eye on Equity – The tragic death of George Floyd in 2020 led to national civil unrest and calls to defund the police. It also provided us the opportunity to initiate conversations regarding equity in traffic safety. Join us for a workshop to learn about 2 reports recently released by the Governor’s Highway Safety Association (GHSA) highlighting the disproportionate impact traffic crashes have on minority communities and learn what states are doing to address disparities. Traffic enforcement has always been and will always be a critical countermeasure in the field of traffic safety but how can we all work together to eliminate disparity while saving lives at the same time.

Moderator: Chuck DeWeese, Assistant Commissioner, Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) and Chair of the Governor’s Highway Safety Association (GHSA).

Speaker 1- Pam Shadel Fischer, Senior Director of External Engagement at GHSA

Speaker 2- Michael Prince – Director, Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning

Speaker 3- Chief Joseph Sinagra, Saugerties NY Police Department
