However, practitioners and partnerships within other safety disciplines play an important role in helping to advance all elements of the Safe System Approach. This plan aims to educate transportation professionals on the effectiveness of the Safe System Approach while also offering guidance on how to prioritize safety in the U.S. as a means to achieving zero traffic fatalities.
