 Upcoming Event:

New York State Slow Moving Vehicle Symposium

WHEN: February 21, 2017 8:00am – 3:00pm
WHERE: DoubleTree Hotel
6301 State Route 298
East Syracuse, NY 13057

It is not unusual to find yourself sharing the road with slow moving vehicles such as farm/agricultural equipment, construction vehicles…even horse and buggies. They all have the right to use the roadways. Our challenge is to develop a plan to deal with these unique highway safety challenges so that all users have access to safe roads.
The New York State Sheriffs’ Association and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee cordially invite highway safety advocates from law enforcement, farm/agriculture, construction, Amish/Mennonite, public health, and non-governmental organizations to the 2017 Slow Moving Vehicle Symposium.

The symposium will cover slow moving vehicle highway safety issues from the farm, construction, law enforcement, and religious community perspectives. A member of the Amish community will describe his lifestyle and his highway safety efforts. Current methods of SMV highway safety outreach will be shared.

• Registration and a continental breakfast will be from 8:00 am to 9:00 am.
• Lunch will be provided.
• Contact the hotel directly for lodging.
Register using the form at this link.  Deadline to register is January 27.


Funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with a grant from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee
