Safety agency releases "Most Wanted" list

Nebraska drivers should be informed about the items that made it onto the National Transportation Safety Board list of 'Most Wanted" safety improvements for 2016. In addition to some items that appeared on the 2015 list, the 2016 list features some unique safety items. One focus of the list is to reduce fatigue-related motor vehicle accidents.

Nine other important transportation safety issues were highlighted alongside fatigue-related crashes. Safety leaders announced the top 10 issues during the 95th annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board. Additional issues introduced in the 2016 list include improved oversight of rail transit safety, strengthened occupant protection, the expanded use of recorders and increased availability of collision-avoidance technologies in commercial and passenger motor vehicles.

The transportation safety list also introduced the issue of promoting the completion of rail safety initiatives, a combination of two pressing 2015 issues. In addition to these new and combined issues, the list brought back the 2015 issues of disconnect from fatal distractions, medical fitness, substance impairment and loss of control in flight. The National Safety Council CEO thanked the NTSB for increasing awareness of technologies that can be used to make drivers safer on the road.

While technology may help reduce the number of car crashes in the future, car accidents continue to take place with dismaying regularity. While some may be unavoidable, most are caused as the result of human error. A person who has been injured in a collision that was the result of another motorist's driving while impaired or distracted may want to have the assistance of an attorney in seeking compensation for the medical expenses and other losses that have been incurred.
