Practical Application for Administrative and Coalition Efforts
Traffic safety practitioners have identified processes and activities that can help communities build strong and sustainable traffic safety coalitions. Together these processes and activities help to expedite a community's buy-in and ownership of local problems needed to create successful countermeasures to mitigate traffic-related injuries.
Fresh ideas provides coalitions with the opportunity to share successful campaigns and products. These shared ideas give others the ability to put projects on a fast track to success because the work is already done and are easily customized, as well as offers a significant cost savings.
