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!

We’re lining up so much great content that we can’t fit it all into the Annual Meeting! To get you even more excited about New York City and provide educational opportunities for those unable to travel, we offered two webinars before the Annual Meeting:

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law requires SHSOs to expand their highway safety planning outreach and engagement efforts. In our first pre-Annual Meeting webinar, four thought leaders shared their efforts to engage with diverse and underserved communities. Each briefly highlighted their work and then joined the moderator for a facilitated discussion exploring the importance of community authorship and ownership, lessons learned and best practices.

According to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the counterfeit auto-part sector is a $12 billion-a-year business. But, it’s also one that is impacting the safety of vehicle owners, their passengers and other road users. Our second Pre-Annual Meeting webinar, sponsored by Honda, featured public health, private sector and law enforcement panelists discussing the real-world impact counterfeit parts have on consumers and what approaches they’re taking to combat this growing problem.
