Celebrating Alachua’s Community Traffic Safety Team – Our very first CTST!
Happy Birthday Alachua County CTST. Alachua County’s CTST was established 26 years ago. They were the first team organized as part of the Florida Department of Transportation District Two’s Community Traffic Safety Program.
Check out the 26th Year Anniversary Celebration Video of the Alachua/Gilchrist/Levy CTST:
The Alachua CTST has been on the road to safety since April 28, 1994. The team has since expanded to include Gilchrist and Levy Counties. Through the years, team members have promoted traffic safety throughout north central Florida. From the University of Florida “college town” of Gainesville to many rural towns and cities, Alachua County’s CTST covers a diverse variety of roadway concerns. Through community events, on-going educational programs and projects, they help improve awareness and reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes.
Community Traffic Safety Teams (CTSTs) are locally based groups of highway safety advocates who are committed to solving traffic safety problems. This is done through a comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional, multi-disciplinary approach.
Multi-disciplinary means integrating efforts of the four “E” disciplines that work in highway safety. This includes 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.
We celebrate the birthdays of all the teams of the Northeast FDOT, District Two’s CTSP. Be sure to check out our YouTube channel for more team anniversary/birthday celebration videos.
