2021 Rural Road Safety Awareness Week – Live, work, and play along the Rural Road to Zero
It’s summer! And as Covid-19 restrictions lift and attractions reopen, travelers are expected to hit the road in record numbers and rural road travel will increase exponentially. Help us keep these travelers safe by spreading the word about Rural Road Safety Awareness Week (RRSAW). This year’s promotion will be held July 19-23, 2021, concurrent with the 2021 NLTAPA Virtual Summer Conference. The theme, “Live, work, and play along the Rural Road to Zero,” will focus on safe road users, safe speeds, safe roads, safe vehicles, and post-crash care. Initiated in 2020 by the Rural Safety Center, RRSAW promotes rural road safety to the public, community leaders, and potential partners by telling the “rural story” and shining a light on the unique safety risks faced by rural road users, progress towards addressing these challenges, and solutions that are making a difference on the Rural Road to Zero fatalities and serious injuries. How can LTAPs participate? Visit the 2021 RRSAW webpage and learn how you can share the safety messaging on social media. The LTAP network is a valuable tool that can serve as a direct route for reaching the intended audience with the safety messages.
