Community Traffic Safety Programs (CTSPs) have emerged largely during the 1980s. There are currently well over 300. Each has developed differently, based on local needs and resources and on the technical direction and financial support recieved from NHTSA and the States. The purpose of this project was to examine CTSPs as they currently exist throughout the country and to look at their support environment - State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs), NHTSA Regions, and NHTSA Headquarters technical assistance areas. Specific objectives were to: Examine the range of current CTSPs to determine how they got started, to identify their key characteristics relative to a set of generic attributes identified by NHTSA, and recommended principles for developing new CTSPs and enhancing existing ones; identify and examine the leadership and management styles associated with CTSP organizational structures and identify optimum combinations; and compare CTSP program requirements with NHTSA's countermeasure products and develop guidelines for countermeasures designed for CTSP use.
