GHSA 2023 Annual Meeting

GHSA 2023 Annual Meeting
August 12–16, 2023
New York, New York

The Governors Highway Safety Association’s 2023 Annual Meeting will be held in the heart of New York City, August 12-16. With traffic fatalities and dangerous driving at unprecedented levels, it’s critical to bring together highway safety, public health, law enforcement and business leaders from across the nation to address the ongoing roadway safety crisis. This year’s theme, “Connecting Communities: Putting Vision Zero into Action,” affirms the importance of involving communities of all sizes in implementing proven and innovative solutions for preventing crashes. We can’t wait to see you in the Big Apple, a vibrant city that is the epicenter of the Vision Zero effort in the United States.

General sessions will cover critical roadway safety topics that will inspire, inform and excite. Senior government officials involved in advancing the National Roadway Safety Strategy that calls for a zero fatalities goal are invited to speak at the Monday Opening General Session. Additional general sessions will explore equity and engagement in traffic safety, progress toward implementing the Safe System approach and ensuring non-motorized road users have a right to the road.

Workshops will dive deep into a wide array of traffic safety topics, including speeding, impaired driving, distracted driving, bike and pedestrian safety, equity in traffic enforcement, how to reach and support underserved communities, highway safety criminal justice, auto safety technology, traffic safety culture, teen driver safety and the future of the Drug Recognition Expert program. Additional topics and speakers will be announced soon – keep an eye out here or on our Twitter feed for the latest!
