This Council takes our safety commitment to the next level.
Now, no one should doubt the capabilities of any of these ten administrations to enhance safety in their particular areas. But why not bring together the best practices of these agencies? Why not make it easier for them to share safety data? Why not let the best minds of one agency offer a helpful perspective to the best minds of another agency?
If DOT can partner effectively with HUD and EPA on something like the Obama Administration's Livable Communities initiative, why not have agencies within DOT partner with each other on safety?
Now, they can. The new Safety Council, to be chaired by Deputy Secretary John Porcari, will underline the safety focus of all DOT agencies and improve the impact of all DOT safety programs.
Our new Safety Council--one DOT, one important goal.
