Safer Vehicles and Post-Crash Care

Safer Vehicles

The size and weight of vehicles and availability of vehicle safety systems can play a major role in the likelihood and severity of crashes. 

Key Strategies 

Post-Crash Care

Post-crash care focuses on improving the survivability of people involved in crashes with timely access to medical services and effective traffic incident management and data collection. 

Key Strategies 

  • Implement signal technology upgrades for emergency vehicles to improve response time.
  • Partner with Seattle Police Department and Seattle Fire Department to improve data collection at crash sites and around emergency vehicle response times.
