Your Community Traffic Safety Teams (CTST)

Picture of Crosswalk Sign

Florida's Community Traffic Safety Teams (CTSTs) are locally based groups of highway safety advocates who are committed to solving traffic safety problems through a comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional, multi-disciplinary approach. Members include local city, county, state, and occasionally federal agencies, as well as private industry representatives and local citizens. The community boundaries determined by the individuals comprising the team, and can be a city, an entire county, a portion of a county, multiple counties, or any other jurisdictional arrangement.

Multijurisdictional means several agencies (cities, county, and state) plus other groups and organizations working together toward a common goal of improving traffic safety in their community. Multi-disciplinary means integrating the efforts of the 4 "E" disciplines that work in highway safety, including Engineering, Enforcement, Education / public information, and Emergency services. By working together with interested citizens and other traffic safety advocates within their communities, the CTSTs help to solve local traffic safety problems related to the driver, the vehicle, and the roadway.

One common goal of each Community Traffic Safety Team is to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes within their community. Due to the common goals, objectives, and interests of the statewide Community Traffic Safety Teams, the teams decided to form their own unique coalition. The CTST Coalition holds quarterly meetings to share successes, safety materials, best practices and programs and to facilitate technology transfer among the CTSTs.

The Community Traffic Safety Program is a Federal, State and Local Government endorsed program developed to reduce the number of traffic crashes on Florida roadways. The program was created in response to federal legislation (the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1990), which calls for local participation, and solutions to traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities on local roadways.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has been active in the support of Community Traffic Safety Teams. Each FDOT District has a CTST Coordinator who works closely with the CTSTs in their geographic area, and the Central FDOT Safety Office acts as a liaison to the District Coordinators.
