The National Transportation Safety Board released its “most wanted” list for 2013, highlighting its top transportation safety concerns, including preserving highway infrastructure and mandating collision-avoidance technologies.
NTSB’s annual list of its top advocacy priorities calls for ending distraction in all modes of transportation.
“Distraction was the cause of multiple accidents investigated by the agency in recent years, and its deadly effects will only continue to grow as a national safety threat,” NTSB said.
Six of the 10 issues focus on highway travel where most transportation fatalities take place and include substance-impaired driving, which NTSB said was the No. 1 killer on the list.
