KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: “Until That Quantum Leap …"

Michelle May, Highway Safety Program, Program Manager, ODOT

Our nation is at the dawn of a golden age of connected and driverless vehicles that will surely lead down the path “Toward Zero Deaths.” But in the meantime, how do we manage public safety in an era of rising traffic deaths, proliferating cell phones and a graying population? How do we reach millions of motorists blind to the role they play in preventing crashes? Michelle May will explore the data and science behind these trends, and offer strategies to address the demographic changes shaping the safety of Ohio roads.
