The all-new BMW M4 CS - the art of dynamic supremacy.

NHTSA / You have one job... #JustDrive

In 2015, distracted driving claimed 3,477 lives, and 391,000 more were injured. During daylight hours approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving, which creates enormous potential for deaths and injuries on America's roadways. Teens were the largest age group reported as distracted at the time of fatal crashes. We'd like to encourage you to continually talk to teens, and everyone else, to spread the message that distracted driving is dangerous, in all forms, whether it be texting, eating, or even reading social media, and must be stopped. You might be asking yourself at this point, "What can we do to ensure drivers are safe on America's roadways?"
Well, that's exactly what we'd hope you would say... We're hosting a Tweet Up on April 28 to spread the message of the dangers of distracted driving and we'd like you to help by spreading it to your friends, family, and followers. By constantly reminding drivers to put down their phones and #JustDrive, we reduce the risks associated with distracted driving. Won't you join us in our fight for safer roadways? 
Who: NHTSA and You!
What: #JustDrive Tweet Up
When: Friday, April 28, 2017, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. ET  
How: Follow the conversation using the hashtag #JustDrive. Feel free to mention @NHTSAgov in any of your tweets and we will return as many questions and comments as we can! 

Follow NHTSA on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with the latest recalls and safety campaigns.

UAW / Tell Congress Not to Take Health Care Coverage from Working Families

Virtually everything working people have gained to improve health and retirement security since the 1940s is now at risk, including Medicare, Medicaid, workplace health plans, the Affordable Care Act and Social Security. 
Republicans in Congress are rushing to approve legislation that effectively would end these programs without providing a replacement for the 30 million Americans who will become uninsured.

CALL 1-318-300-1249
Tell your representative you will remember

Working People Shouldn’t Lose Health Care Coverage: Repealing the Affordable Care Act without any replacement would collapse the insurance market and strip coverage from 30 million Americans.
Workplace Coverage Shouldn’t Be Gutted While the Wealthy Gain Tax Breaks: GOP proposals include a new tax on health coverage workers earn on the job, leading to higher out-of-pocket costs or new taxes for workers. Under the same proposals, the wealthy would enjoy lower taxes.
Medicare Shouldn’t Be Turned Into a Voucher Program: Congressional leaders want to eliminate Medicare as we know it and replace guaranteed health coverage for seniors with a limited coupon or voucher.
Medicaid Funding Shouldn’t Be Cut: Republican plans would force major cuts to Medicaid for people who desperately need it. This includes long-term care for America’s seniors and more than one-third of American children.

Innovation of the Month:

Using Data to Improve Traffic Incident Management

Through Every Day Counts (EDC) round four, the Federal Highway Administration is promoting the use of low-cost, off-the-shelf technologies to collect data to improve traffic incident management (TIM).
TIM-related data can be collected with existing advanced transportation management systems, computer-aided dispatch software, electronic crash reporting systems, and smart devices. Some transportation agencies already collect data with each of these systems.
The Arizona Department of Transportation, for example, modified its Traffic and Criminal Software—or TraCS—system at a low cost to collect data for three key TIM performance measures: roadway clearance time, incident clearance time, and number of secondary crashes.
Tennessee uses a locally developed electronic crash reporting system that collects data for two of the standard performance measures.
Visit FHWA’s TIM Knowledgebase for tools and resources on practices and performance measurement.

Traffic Incident Management Topic of Alaska Conference

FHWA staff discussed the benefits of TIM responder training at the Alaska Fire Chiefs Association Leadership Summit on February 9 in Juneau. Several of the 60 fire chiefs attending the event noted that after they participated in TIM training, the result was quicker and safer clearance of traffic incidents in their areas. The fire chiefs encouraged colleagues from other localities to pursue TIM training for first responders.

Colorado Peer Exchange Explores Warm-Mix Asphalt

Representatives of six State departments of transportation, private industry, and FHWA participated in a warm-mix asphalt (WMA) peer exchange on February 14 and 15 in Colorado. State DOT staff from Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania presented overviews of their experiences with WMA implementation plans, challenges, and success stories. FHWA and asphalt industry representatives also provided perspectives on WMA. The event concluded with breakout sessions to discuss ways to promote the benefits of using WMA.

Texas Uses Design-Build on Toll Lane Project

A February 28 ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for a toll lane project on State Highway 71, a major corridor that connects drivers to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Bastrop, and other central Texas communities. The Texas Department of Transportation is using the design-build contracting method to deliver the project, which adds a toll lane in each direction on SH 71. The purpose of the project is to enhance safety and reduce congestion on the corridor. The new lanes are designed to offer a free-flowing and reliable bypass route for through traffic.
