Together For Safer Roads celebra su quinto aniversario, Lanza el Consejo de Liderazgo Global para la Seguridad de la Flota

La coalición se dirige hacia 2020 con proyectos piloto y asociaciones público-privadas para acelerar considerablemente los progresos en la prevención de muertes y lesiones graves por accidentes de tráfico


BROOKLYN, NY ? Dec. 17, 2019 ? Together for Safer Roads (TSR), a coalition of leading private sector companies driven to save lives, celebrates its fifth anniversary this month with significant road safety milestones and program updates, including the formation of its new Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety (GLCFS). The coalition was launched in late 2014 to align the private sector?s road safety efforts with the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety. Since that time, the coalition has expanded its programs to partner with public sector leaders who are catalysts for safer roads.

Supported by its membership?s commitment, TSR?s mission is to bend the curve on road traffic collisions so they are no longer one of the leading causes of death and injuries worldwide.  This mission is realized through projects around the world. In 2019, the coalition forged projects and partnerships across three core program areas:

  • Compañías y flotas más seguras
    • TSR introduced the Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety (GLCFS) to a select test group at the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance annual meeting in October. Now integrated into TSR?s Fleet Safety Program, the Global Leadership Council uses peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing to help smaller fleet operators create safety cultures that reduce risk and save lives in the communities they serve;
    • La TSR recibió una subvención de desafío de la AnheuserFundación Buschque se centra en el apoyo a las organizaciones que ayudan a las personas y a las comunidades a prosperar. Los fondos se utilizarán para apoyar el trabajo de seguridad de la flota en la ciudad de Nueva York y Houston, unasí como el Consejo de Liderazgo Global, invitando a las empresas interesadas en la seguridad de la flota a unirse a la TSR y participar en el Consejo;
    • The City of New York?s fleet, under the direction of the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services, (DCAS), joined the Council as a founding member;
    • La TSR también anunció una asociación formal con la ciudad de Nueva York para mejorar la seguridad de los ciclistas. La asociación comenzó con un taller en octubre, Digitalizando la Visión Cero, donde ambas partes convocaron a los líderes del sector público y privado en la gestión de la seguridad de las flotas, la tecnología y el ciclismo para desarrollar pilotos de datos, análisis y tecnología para reducir los conflictos entre los operadores de grandes vehículos y las personas que van en bicicleta.
  • Ciudades más seguras
    • Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner appointed TSR to the Houston Vision Zero Executive Committee. The Committee is focused on drafting the City?s Vision Zero Action Plan, el compromiso de poner fin a las muertes y lesiones graves relacionadas con el tráfico entre todos los usuarios de las carreteras de la ciudad para 2030;
    • Esta primavera, la TSR lanzó Calles más seguras de Houston Fase 1, un La iniciativa se centró en mejorar la seguridad de todos los usuarios de la carretera, peatones, conductores de autobús, ciclistas y conductores del barrio de Gulfton;
    • La TSR y la ciudad de Bellevue, WA, lanzaron un análisis de casi accidentes y colisiones, el primero de su clase en toda la ciudad. TSR y Bellevue se asociaron con Brisk Synergies Tech Corp. y el Consorcio de Transporte del Pacífico Noroeste (PacTrans) de la Universidad de Washington para recoger y analizar datos de tráfico para estudiar la correlación entre los casi accidentes y las colisiones. El miembro de la TSR Republic Services también proporcionó datos y conocimientos sobre el uso del análisis para mejorar la seguridad de la flota.
  • Datos e innovación digital
    • During the launch of the United Nations? Fifth Global Road Safety Week in May, international leaders held a briefing to recognize New York City?s leadership in Vision Zero and pledge their support for it. Together for Safer Roads and its members, including Anheuser-Busch, supported the City of New York?s Connected Vehicle Pilot: Anheuser-Busch has equipped its local fleet with connected vehicle technology to test driver alerts and other safety measures;
    • TSR?s Global Entrepreneur Program prepared to induct its third cohort. The unique mentorship program connects early stage companies with road safety experts at multinational companies, governments, universities and others. Its goal is to reimagine solutions that reduce crashes and fatalities on the world?s roads. The 2020 pitch day finalists and road safety leaders included Visión CY, Derq, Digisure, Medición de Deterioro de la Marihuana y la Conducción (IMMAD), NoTraffic, Road-Aware...y... Populus. CyVision, Derq y Populus formarán la Cohorte 3 y se unirán a la coalición como miembros asociados.
    • Dreampact Ventures, una empresa de capital de riesgo; Rio Ventures Holdings, un Fondo de Empresas Privadas de las Islas Vírgenes Británicasy Marsh & McLennan Companies, una firma de servicios profesionales globales,  se unieron a la Coalición como nuevos miembros con un interés específico en el avance de nuevos modos de transporte más seguros y sostenibles.

?The City of New York is proud to have the cleanest and safest municipal vehicle fleet in the country, and we are proud to partner with the TSR Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety to build upon this success,? said Keith Kerman, Deputy Commissioner for the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services and NYC Chief Fleet Officer. ?As a national leader in fleet safety, it?s important for us to share best practices with others and to learn from other colleagues in the world of fleet management. The Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety is a unique and vital program bringing solutions to under-resourced, smaller fleets. This initiative will help extend the work we are doing in New York City to places across the country and we are eager to advance this mission in 2020.?

?TSR?s work with the City of Houston has already helped improve our strategy to achieve Vision Zero,? said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. ?Having TSR on our committee aligns very well with our goals and brings great expertise to our initiative to end traffic deaths in Houston by 2030.?

?The City of Bellevue takes a Safe Systems approach to Vision Zero, emphasizing data as a central strategy,? said Franz Loewenherz, principal transportation planner and project manager for the Vision Zero Action Plan. ?Working with TSR and its members to capture near miss data is yet another step we?ve taken to make our roads as safe as possible and move toward the elimination of traffic fatalities and serious injuries. The analysis of data gathered from this project will be an instrumental part of improving our street safety record and shaping a safer Bellevue for all road users. We?ll have additional insights to share in 2020.?

?It?s been great to be a part of TSR and its innovation ecosystem raising the profile of safety,? said Pablo Gonzalez, Co-founder and Principal of Dreampact Ventures. ?The work that the coalition has been doing in the last year is outstanding – actionable projects that are making a real difference. TSR is not just talking about problems but solving them.? 

“The fleet safety world has been underserved by technology for decades, and Together for Safer Roads serves a crucial purpose trying to change that, said Raffi Mardirosian, Vice President Business at Ouster, one of the charter members of the Global Entrepreneur Program?s Cohort 1. ?By partnering leading progressive, safety-oriented fleets with startups pursuing the latest technology that can make drivers and vulnerable road users safer, TSR is catalyzing and accelerating safety impact – serving a unique role in the ecosystem.??

?As a major user of roads around the world and with over 180,000 colleagues and their families using the world?s roads every day, road safety is a top priority for our company.  As a founding member of TSR, we are proud to be a part of and to support the new Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety?, said Catalina Garcia, Global Corporate Affairs Director at AB InBev.

?Helping to ensure that our roads are safe through smarter driving is a priority that we take very seriously at AT&T,? said Chris Penrose, Vicepresidente Senior, Soluciones avanzadas de movilidad y empresa, AT&T. ?With the advent of 5G, smarter cities, data collection and analysis and eventually automated driving, the possibilities will be limitless. Working with Together for Safer Roads puts us at the forefront of harnessing technology to improve road safety and save lives.?

?I am very proud of our team, members and partners and the work we?ve done this year, said Dave Braunstein, President, Together for Safer Roads. ?As we move into 2020, we will continue to expand our work with both the private sector members and the public sector partners to initiate problem-solving projects. We?re dedicated to unearthing data to help us create better drivers, smarter cities and safer road users. In particular, through the new Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety, we will be working with fleets to help educate drivers on safer interactions with other road users. This is a unique initiative that we believe will make a big impact on road safety. Our safer cities work will also continue to expand around the globe, working with the public sector to create smarter and safer roadways.?
