National Transportation Safety Board's 2019 Top 10 Safety Recommendations

Federal agency announces its annual list of improvements for 2019-2020.

What measures need to be taken to reduce injuries on the road?

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released 46 recommendations it wants to target for 2019 through 2020.

“We at the NTSB can speak on these issues. We board members can testify by invitation to legislatures and to Congress, but we have no power of our own to act," Sumwalt said. "We are counting on industry, advocates, and government to act on our recommendations. We are counting on the help of the broader safety community to implement these recommendations.”

Of the 46 safety recommendations the NTSB wants to be implemented in the next two years, 20 seek regulatory action to improve transportation safety.

Ten of the most critical safety recommendations comprise the agency's Most Wanted List, including broad, long-standing issues that continue to pose risks to the traveling American public.
