A Primer for Traffic Safety Culture

In November 2013, ITE Journal reported on the Institute of Transportation Engineers' participation in the first National Roadway Safety Culture Summit that took place in August 2013. The article, "Partnering Across Disciplines for Traffic Culture Change" detailed the summit’s focus on the impact safety culture has on roadway crashes and how that culture can contribute to eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on roadways. The summit concluded with a call to action to create a toolkit, best practices, and guidance on models for measuring behavior and changes for reliability, validity, and interventions. Work is ongoing to develop a common, tangible definition of traffic safety cultures and the associated materials to help promote it. This current article supports these efforts.
