Using Data to Craft a Safety Narrative: High Injury Networks
Wednesday, June 9, 2021 | 1pm-2:30pm PDT 

A high injury network (HIN) provides a compelling data-driven story about where and how safety improvements can save the most lives. It also provides opportunities to get the public involved in proactively promoting traffic safety. An HIN helps communities locate where traffic safety problems exist and where efforts can be focused in the future. Join Go Human to learn innovative ways to incorporate crash and equity data to focus traffic safety efforts. Topics include varying approaches to HINs, strategies to incorporate equity into your HIN, prioritizing, and advancing improvements with a Vision Zero or Local Road Safety Plan. Register here for the session.
