Roadway Safety Advocates
As a member of the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, the NEMO RPC takes a role in the partnership of safety advocates throughout the state who have come together with the goal to end traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roadways.
Missouri’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Show-Me Zero, outlines the state’s plan for achieving success by implementing strategies most effective at mitigating the behaviors and issues most commonly associated with fatal and serious injury crashes in Missouri.
The NEMO RPC is directly associated with the Coalition for Roadway Safety Northeast Region. The regional group is led by MoDOT representative Marisa Ellison.
Under the new strategic highway safety plan, Show-Me ZERO Driving Missouri Toward Safer Roads, four areas of emphasis have been defined:
- Occupant Protection
- Distracted Driving
- Speed and Aggressive Driving
- Impaired Driving
The NEMO RPC strives to work with area schools to promote roadway safety through educational materials, training and encouragement to make good choices when getting behind the wheel or electing to be a passenger.
