2013 Strategic Visioning Workshop

In this workshop, held April 2–3, 2013, in St. Paul, Minnesota, a small group of invited participants focused on advancing Minnesota's safety agenda by developing strategies to move the state toward zero deaths. The event included presentations, group discussions, and activities designed to identify new approaches for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on Minnesota roadways. 

Stakeholder Input: Safety Community Now Online

To help update the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP), feedback is being collected from Minnesota’s safety community through an online tool that allows anyone to provide thoughts and input on the future of traffic safety in Minnesota. This online tool, introduced at the workshop, allows participants to submit ideas, vote on existing ideas, or add comments about safety strategies. These strategies will play an important role in the SHSP, which will guide us toward zero deaths on Minnesota's roadways. To access the site, you will need to create an IdeaScale account.
