Traffic Safety Bookmarks

25 Years of Bookmarks!

The Northeast Florida Community Traffic Safety Program started developing relationships with local libraries and schools in 1999. Traffic safety tips for kids were shared primarily on bookmarks, which led to activity books, tip cards, and even schoolbook cover wraps. In 2017, we targeted messages toward drivers and children on our bookmarks. In 2021, activity cards were created for libraries with bike, walk, ride, and drive safe education and puzzles like crosswords, mazes, word searches, and coloring activities.

This year, we are showcasing a new bookmark with our rural, country-themed “Life is a journey” campaign. The messages encourage positive driving behaviors to tackle aggressive speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, and buckling up. We have an updated traffic safety bookmark with cute animals targeted at young children. Another bookmark focuses on occupant protection for all passengers and child passenger safety. Finally, we created one for preteens and young adults with pedestrian and bicycle safety reminders. Here’s a sneak peek.

Happy Birthday Nassau CTST

Celebrating the Nassau County Traffic Safety Team

Happy Birthday Nassau CTST! The Nassau County Traffic Safety Team was established on November 12, 2003 by the Northeast FDOT, District Two’s CTSP. Together they work with local agencies, engineers, law enforcement, emergency services, educators, citizens and partners. Their goal is to help resolve traffic safety concerns on their roadways.

Towns and cities in Nassau County include Fernandina Beach, Callahan, Yulee, Hilliard, and Amelia Island. This most northeastern county of Florida has a diverse roadway system traveling through coastal, rural and historic areas. We wish the Nassau County Traffic Safety Team a very “Happy Birthday.” We appreciate all of the past and present members for their dedication to promoting traffic safety throughout their communities.

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.
