Governor’s Conference on Highway Safety Addresses Biggest Challenges on Wisconsin Roads

WISCONSIN DELLS, WI — Transportation safety was the center of the conversation at the 2023 Wisconsin Governor’s Conference on Highway Safety in Wisconsin Dells. The annual meeting is hosted by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Safety.

This conference is a gathering of traffic safety professionals and advocates with the goal of preventing crashes and injuries on Wisconsin roads and reversing trends of dangerous driving behaviors.

“I often talk a lot about connecting the dots, which is really just about recognizing how every challenge facing our state is connected to each of the others, so it was great to see such strong collaboration as we brought together our state’s top transportation safety experts for this conference,” Governor Tony Evers said. “This work is critically important to keeping our families, communities, and roads safe. By working together, this conference is a chance to bring people with different skills and expertise to the table to find solutions to our state’s biggest challenges on our roads and highways.”

Presenters highlighted the latest in technologies and best practices to keep Wisconsin highways safe. Sessions covered a variety of topics, including law enforcement strategies, crash response and traffic incident management, child passenger safety, and data analysis.

As Wisconsin plans for the future of transportation, WisDOT is focusing on the Safe System approach to eliminate serious injuries and fatalities for all road users.

“Safety is at the core of our WisDOT mission," WisDOT Secretary Craig Thompson said. "To reach our goals, we need to consider all aspects of transportation. That’s why meetings like the Governor’s Conference on Highway Safety are so important. Input from law enforcement, community advocates, engineers, and others is so crucial to a transportation system of the 21st century.”
