Community Traffic Safety Team

in partnership with FDOT


FDOT encourages integrating the efforts of the 4 "E" (Engineering, Enforcement, Education/Public Information, and Emergency Services) disciplines into highway safety. By working together with interested citizens and other traffic safety advocates within their communities, the CTSTs help solve local traffic safety problems and promote public awareness of traffic safety best practices through campaigns that educate drivers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and bicyclists about the rules of the road.
