Transportation Safety Resource Center 2010

The purpose of this program is to support the Safety Tactical Asset Management Plan of New Jersey by providing optimal strategies to address network deficiencies by reducing traffic related fatalities, with an emphasis on providing services at the local/municipal level. Specifically, network deficiencies include (geometrics, sight distance, cross slopes, rutting, skid resistance, etc.) that can cross cut several/all asset categories. The Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) will also provide support to other established programs such as the Comprehensive Strategic Highway Safety Plan (CSHSP), the Safety Management Task Force (SMTF), Statewide Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (STRCC), Safety Conscious Planning (SCP), the Police Technical Assistance Program (PTAP), Senior Safety, Delaware Valley Planning Commission (DVRPC) Regional Safety Task Force (RSTF), and participation in statewide and regional safety initiatives. The activities associated with the TSRC are efforts to maximize the opportunity to advance safety at all levels throughout New Jersey with the goal to conduct analytical work which can be used to facilitate department of transportation (DOT) management response to safety problem statements submitted from local governments and the specific needs of the motoring public.
