Hi Friend,

It’s been an exciting start to 2022 for TSR with work progressing on our Truck of the Future initiative, our near-miss analytics work as well as our FOCUS for fleet safety program, and our award-winning work in Houston continuing to be recognized.

We are thrilled to be able to announce that we will have a panel session at SXSW in early March. Billed as an essential destination for global professionals, SXSW proves that the most unexpected discoveries happen when diverse topics and people come together. That is why we are so honored that the SXSW community chose our session highlighting the life-changing work we did on Hillcroft Avenue in Houston.

Below, you can learn more about our SXSW panel and other Vision Zero efforts in the news.

Even more exciting announcements will be coming in the days ahead so please be sure to check your email and our social channels at Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

Thank you for your continued support.

Noah Budnick, Executive Director
Join TSR at SXSW for a Panel Discussion About our Work Transforming Hillcroft Ave in Houston

Join us at SXSW on March 18, 2022 from 11:30am – 12:30pm CST for a panel discussion, “Gulfton’s Journey to Complete Community and Life.”

In 2020, as part of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s “Complete Communities” program, we at TSR collaborated with Connect Community, Houston Public Works, Houston Planning, Anheuser-Busch, AT&T, and AIG on the Hillcroft Avenue project. Pairing the private and public sectors together, we turned Hillcroft Avenue, once considered one of the most dangerous roads in Houston, into a safer and more equitable road, inspiring Vision Zero improvements around the city of Houston.

Selected via SXSW's PanelPicker®, their user-generated session proposal platform that allows the SXSW community to have a voice in what sessions are programmed at SXSW, we are thrilled to bring together this panel at this premier conference.

FOCUS Fort Collins Accepting Registrations
"The Safety Culture Survey really helped us to uncover important insights from our drivers' perspectives." - Josh Eisenstein, Filco Carting.

"It's so important for us, as leaders, to be reminded of how important we are to the strength of our organization's safety culture. (This course) is really valuable." - Kenan Smith, Facility Solutions Plus

We're looking to register a few more Fort Collins-area organizations for our free FOCUS on Fleet Safety training program, which helps companies build safe and efficient operations through a combination of safety training, leadership development, and technology—helping to achieve Vision Zero goals in the cities we train in.

With the program starting in late February, ideal participants would meet the following criteria:

  • Organizations with 2 to 100 vehicles
  • Delivery vans, box trucks, passenger vans, full-sized pick-ups, flatbeds and other single unit vehicles (no tractor trailers)
  • Desire to build/improve safety culture

They would be joining a well-represented cohort of Colorado Iron & Metal, the Food Bank for Larimer County, UCHealth, Colorado State University, Vindeket Foods, and others.

If you know of any organizations interested in joining, please have them register online or contact David Frick, Fleet Safety Program Manager.

US DOT Releases their Comprehensive National Roadway Safety Strategy

In late January,  the US DOT released their Comprehensive National Roadway Safety Strategy and it includes an ambitious long-term goal of reaching zero roadway fatalities.

“FMCSA is committed to reducing Commercial Motor Vehicle fatalities and overall fatalities. We will work across the Department to coordinate proactive compliance and outreach programs and work collaboratively with all stakeholders,” said FMCSA Executive Director and Chief Safety Officer Jack Van Steenburg. “Our goal is to prevent crashes and preserve the quality of life for all roadway users across America. Zero is our goal.”

"As we move towards swift implementation, we look forward to partnering with every level of government, industry, advocacy, and all who will come together to address this crisis,” said Robin Hutcheson, former U.S. DOT Deputy Assistant Secretary for Safety Policy, and Acting Administrator for FMCSA.
