Safety Circuit Rider Peer Exchange: November 9 and 10, 2016, Kansas City, Missouri - Summary Report

On November 9-10, 2016, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Safety sponsored a Safety Circuit Rider Peer Exchange in Kansas City, Missouri, based on a request from the Iowa Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) Center. The purpose of the peer exchange was to bring together LTAP Centers to discuss the benefits and challenges of a Safety Circuit Rider (SCR) program. The goal of an SCR program is to make significant progress in reducing the number of crash and fatalities nationally by improving safety on local roadways by providing technical assistance, training, and other safety-related services to local agencies. The peer exchange provided a forum for participants to discuss and exchange ideas on Safety Circuit Rider program startup, budgets, contracting, types of tasks (training, technology transfer, and technical assistance), program evaluation, and noteworthy practices. A mix of federal, State, and local agencies participated in the peer exchange. Participants represented LTAP centers with established programs, those in the beginning stages of a program, and ones in the early planning stages of a program. Twenty-two attendees participated in the peer exchange, from Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Virginia, and Washington. FHWA formatted the peer exchange to provide a mix of presentations, facilitated roundtable discussions, and breakout sessions. This structure provided attendees with several opportunities to collect information from their peers and to examine different ways to improve and/or start an SCR program.
