3M Launches North American Roadshow to
Demonstrate Transportation Safety Innovation
3M's Transportation Safety Division has launched a nearly 50-city
North American roadshow, traveling throughout the United States
and Canada to showcase 3M road safety technology and innovation.
Launched on January 28, 2018 and concluding October 2, 2018, the 3M
Transportation Safety Roadshow Truck will offer interactive experiences
featuring hands-on, in-person, and virtual demonstrations of innovative 3M technologies in a custom designed 18-wheel, 53-foot long truck.
As a leader in this space, 3M aims to increase awareness and understanding of the infrastructure needed to help better protect motorists
today, as well as prepare for autonomous vehicles of the future with
this roadshow. The 3M Transportation Safety Roadshow Truck is
highlighting the importance of improving safety for drivers, pedestrians, and road workers, as well as where transportation infrastructure is
headed in the future. The truck is loaded with interactive demonstrations and experiences from 3M's Transportation Safety Division.
A partner in the Toward Zero Deaths campaign, 3M is committed to increasing the safety and mobility of U.S. highways
and roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety

Administration, in 2016 alone, more than 37,000 people died on
our nation's roadways, a 5.6 percent increase from 2015. The 3M
Transportation Safety Division develops technologies that improve
the driver experience and help to prevent accidents and fatalities
that occur because of weather, work zones, visibility and limited
infrastructure. For more information on the 3M Transportation
Safety Division Roadshow and to view the truck's schedule, please

NTSB Recommends Unsignalized Intersection
Improvement Guide as Tool to Reduce Fatalities
From 2010 to 2015, more than 45,000 people were killed in intersection crashes in the United States. More than 66 percent of these
crashes occurred at unsignalized intersections (where no highway
traffic signals control right-of-way), accounting for more than 15
percent of all fatal crashes on U.S. roadways. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has recommended that traffic authorities
adopt "safe system" design principles, which means acknowledging
human limitations and vulnerabilities and accounting for them as
best as possible in road design. There are extensive resources that

The ITE Awards Program kicked off on January 2 with an updated website, submission process,
and brochure. Although the first deadline has passed for award submissions, there is still time to
apply for the Wilbur Smith, Transportation Achievement, District/Section Communications, and
HSIS awards. The deadline is April 1.
ITE has streamlined the submittal requirements for most awards. This is in the interest of
making the entire submittal process easier for award submitters. To help further facilitate this new
process, ITE is now using OpenWater as a platform for award submittal and judging. The system
will work in concert with other aspects of the annual meeting to have one platform where users are
able to enter information. This is now the only way that ITE will be able to submit awards from this
point forward.
The list of awards and submittal information is located at www.ite.org/awards.
