North Carolina Speed and Safety Symposium

Speeding is a factor in more fatal crashes than alcohol in North Carolina and has claimed the lives of more than 400 North Carolinians in the last year alone. To help bring this issue to the forefront, build on recent progress in the state, and learn from international experts, the UNC Highway Safety Research Center is presenting the North Carolina Speed and Safety Symposium, in partnership with the NC Department of Transportation and the NC Governor's Highway Safety Program.
