Driver safety, two perspectives
“For the first time in nearly a decade, preliminary 2016 data from the National Safety Council estimates that as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes last year. That marks a 6% increase over 2015, and a 14% increase over 2014 – the most dramatic two-year escalation since 1964 – 53 years” February 15, 2017 National Safety Council publication.
Motor Vehicle related deaths are also the number one cause of workplace fatalities in the US.
Come to the September meeting to get a couple of expert perspectives on this growing problem and what can be done about it.
About the Speakers:
Greg Cupper is the President of Logical Training Solutions. His timely topic:
The last two calendar years have shown the greatest increase in motor vehicle deaths in 50 plus years. These alarming trends coupled with driver inattention and distraction, have increased driver risk to all-time highs. New research is showing how cognitive distraction is a rising cause of crashes. We will examine how to reduce driver risk through limiting all distractions – visual, physical and cognitive.
Officer Jonathan Sloat, Public Information Officer, California Highway Patrol. Officer Sloat has been with the CHP for 20 years. As a Public Information Officer, he is in charge of all community outreach efforts and events, educational grants and media relations, as well as our volunteer program in the North Bay Area. Officer Sloat will describe the problem of distracted driving from a Public Safety perspective
