Safe System Approach (SSA)

A better way forward

Following the framework of the Safe System Approach, SLOCOG Road to Zero is working to eliminate regional traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2050.

The Safe System Approach builds and reinforces multiple layers of protection, working to both prevent crashes from happening and minimize harm caused when crashes do occur. 

The Safe System Approach recognizes that humans make mistakes and are physically vulnerable. This means we must create a culture of safety at all levels of our transportation system.
