Safety

Improving roadway safety for drivers, transit riders, pedestrians and bicyclists requires cooperation among facility owners. The SMTC seeks to advance objectives of reducing serious injuries and fatalities for all users of the transportation system, including non-motorized users such as bicyclists and pedestrians. Starting in February 2018, the SMTC has annually agreed to support the State’s statewide targets for safety-related performance measures.

The SMTC conducts cooperative studies and analysis on behalf of our members, either through the lens of corridor studies or through specific safety-focused planning efforts, to inform their development of data-driven safety solutions.
