Sarah Abel (M) is a technical programs manager with
ITE working in transportation planning, complete
streets, safety, Vision Zero, and health. Prior to joining
ITE, Sarah was the planning director for the Town of
St. Michaels, MD, USA and the community design
manager/director at the ESLC Center for Towns on the Eastern
Shore of Maryland. She is a former president of the Association for
Community Design and a certified professional in Social Economic
Environmental Design (SEED).

Currently, the Prioritizing Safety Steering Committee and the
Safe System and Safety Culture working groups are developing
a Prioritizing Safety Roadmap and Action Plan that will guide
RTZ efforts in the coming years. This Roadmap and Action plan
seeks to identify near term (within one year), mid-term (two to
five years) and long-term (five-plus years) efforts that could be
undertaken by the RTZ Coalition, its members or others. The goals
of this Roadmap and Action plan are to make safety a priority in
the United States, to increase the adoption of safety culture at the
organizational and community levels, and to advance the practice
of Safe System techniques. More information on the Roadmap and
Action Plan and near term efforts to be undertaken by the RTZ
Coalition will be available later this year. itej
