The Comprehensive Community-based Traffic Safety Program: Phase II, Program Assessment for District 2 and District 7

Report No: 87-R6

Published in 1986

About the report:

In an attempt to combat recent increases in crashes, injuries, and fatalities, the Transportation Safety Administration of the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) entered into an agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in October 1985, to initiate the Comprehensive Community-Based Traffic Safety Program. The comprehensive program relies on problem identification and program assessment in combining state and local resources to target traffic safety problems.

Two DMV districts, District 2 and District 7, were selected as pilot areas for implementation of the comprehensive program. In June 1986, Phase I, the problem identification phase, was completed. Phase II, the program assessment phase, is designed to identify community resources and address the recommendation made in Phase I, that initial countermeasures should target the program areas of occupant protection, alcohol, selective enforcement, and pedestrian safety. Programs and organizations identified through Phase II were compiled into resource inventories, which are found in Appendix B for District 2 and Appendix C for District 7.

The forthcoming final report will provide a more comprehensive list of programs and organizations concerned with promoting traffic safety, which are to be identified
through continuing research efforts. Also, the final report will detail specific program areas of interest for each organization identified.
