Reducing Traffic Fatalities and Injuries
The Regional Transportation Safety Action Plan (RTSAP) was adopted by the Metropolitan Transportation Board (MTB) on August 17, 2018 (view the resolution) and includes goals to reduce traffic fatalities and decrease serious injuries in the region over the next five years. Through data-driven analysis, input from the public and MRMPO member agencies, targeted field visits, and national best practice research, the RTSAP identifies key safety emphasis areas and action items from policy to enforcement to design to target safety improvements for all roadway users. The RTSAP was developed on the premise that we must balance a fast commute with safer roadways and prioritize safety for all modes over speed. Sometimes taking a minute longer to get to your destination can save a life.
