Keeping transportation system users safe from death and injury is a top goal of the TPB. The Washington metropolitan area is a diverse and rapidly growing region, a major tourist destination, and a gateway for immigrants from all over the world. Growth has meant more people from more places driving, riding, and walking more miles in the Washington region than ever before. Tourists and newcomers may be unfamiliar with local traffic rules and dangers. Street design, motorist behavior, and pedestrian and bicyclist behavior must allow all to remain safe from harm.
The Safety Element of the CLRP summarize the priorities, goals, countermeasures, or projects that address regional safety issues.
The TPB is advised on these issues by its Transportation Safety Subcommittee.
