About FDOT District Two Community Traffic Safety Program
The FDOT District Two Community Traffic Safety Program’s (CTSP) mission statement is to reduce traffic-related fatalities and injuries. The premise of the program is local communities, solving local problems with state assistance.
District Two covers the Northeast Florida region including the following 18 counties: Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Suwannee, Taylor and Union. The major cities include Jacksonville, Gainesville, St. Augustine, Lake City, Palatka, Perry and Starke. As a major access gateway with connections throughout Florida and into other states, District Two plays an important role in regional mobility and the state economy.
Highway safety is at its best when we can address driver behavior, road conditions and vehicle factors as three interacting aspects of collision and injury prevention. Through events, on-going educational programs, education and action projects, individuals and agencies are combining resources to improve awareness and understanding of safety issues on a local level.
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 city, county, state, private industry and citizens. The common goal of each CTST is to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes within their community.
Multi-disciplinary means integrating efforts of the four “E” disciplines that work in highway safety, including Engineering, Education/public information, Enforcement, and Emergency Medical Services. By combining these various disciplines, the CTSTs help to solve local traffic safety problems related to the driver, the vehicle and the roadway.
