NSC Applauds NTSB's Most Wanted List

The annual summary of transportation policies includes addressing distracted driving, substance impaired driving and medical fitness for duty

The NSC has released a statement showing its support for the NTSB for including “disconnect from deadly distractions,” “end substance impairment in transportation,” and “require medical fitness for duty” on its 2015 Most Wanted List. The list highlights the most significant safety issues in transportation.

"The NTSB's Most Wanted List appropriately highlights two critical safety issues: distracted driving and prescription painkiller use,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of NSC. “Our desire to be constantly connected, even while behind the wheel, results in far too many deadly crashes, while the proliferation and misuse of prescription painkillers results in 46 overdose deaths per day. The Council thanks NTSB for keeping these important issues on its Most Wanted List, because continued attention and education are key ingredients of culture change.”

According to NSC Injury Facts 2014, motor vehicle crashes and poisonings – particularly from prescription painkiller overdoses – have been leading causes of unintentional injury deaths in the U.S. for several years.
