  • Ricardo Martinez
Conference paper


Thank you, Dr. Mackay, for your kind introduction, and a thank you to Dr. von Holst, Dr. Nygren, Mr. Wittlov and honored guests, for the invitation to represent the United States at this conference. We have recently made a fundamental shift in how we approach traffic safety in the United States and I hope that our recent successes can illustrate how change can sometimes overcome existing barriers to success.
