CTS researchers were responsible for communicating with metropolitan planning organizations, councils of governments, regional planning councils, Texas police chiefs, sheriffs and emergency medical associations to present information on strategic highway safety plan activities at meetings across the state. CTS staff participated as active stakeholders at these meetings, promoting traffic safety and sharing information to generate public input concerning safety plan initiatives throughout the state. Using crash analysis and roadway data, researchers were able to provide insight into where, when, why and how crashes are occurring on Texas roadways. These efforts led to the production of a revised Strategic Highway Safety Plan for consideration by TxDOT.
