Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST)

CTST Logo with FDOT logo

The Florida Department of Transportation is well aware that building safe roads does not in itself solve the problem of traffic fatalities and injuries. With this in mind the Community Traffic Safety Program was developed.

The goal of the Community Traffic Safety Program is to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes through a comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional, multi-disciplinary approach.This is accomplished through the 4-E approach. Law Enforcement, Emergency Services, Education, and Engineering.

An effective way for communities to accomplish this goal using these resources is through the development of (CTST) Community Traffic Safety Teams.  The members of these teams should include individuals who share a true interest in addressing the traffic safety concerns of their community.  The teams can be City wide, County wide, or even a local community that wants to address their specific traffic concerns.

What is a CTST?

A typical CTST structure could be made up of representation from the following:

Some programs that are high priorities are:

Teams can approach these subjects through involvement with national campaigns such as Click It or Ticket, Put it Down, Drive Safe, You Drink & Drive, You Lose, Stop Red Light Running, Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow, and International Walk/Bike To School Day.  Based upon locally identified traffic concerns, teams may also develop and organize local activities in cooperation with partnering agencies or schools
District six of the Florida Department of Transportation feels strongly that the Community Traffic Safety Program can assist toward the decrease of loss of lives and injuries on the roads of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties.

Upcoming Events

The campaign team conducts a series of community outreach events, door-to-door distributions and attending special events to help spread the campaign message. Check here for campaign news and updates. If you want to host an event or get involved please contact us.
