New Resources: Getting Results: SRTS Programs that Reduce Traffic, Speeding and Distracted Driving

When developing your SRTS program, it’s often very helpful to know what has worked for others in similar situations. To highlight past successes and to provide examples of how successful SRTS programs have tracked their progress, the National Center is developing a series of “Getting Results” resources. The series is designed to help communities plan, track and evaluate SRTS programs.

The three-part “Getting Results” series will highlight SRTS programs that have helped achieve:

  • Traffic reduction
  • Changes in driver behavior that improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, and
  • Increased student participation in walking and bicycling.

The first piece, “Getting Results: SRTS Programs That Reduce Traffic,” shows how schools across the U.S. measured success after using a variety of traffic reduction strategies. The second piece, “Getting Results: SRTS Programs that Reduce Speeding and Distracted Driving,”  gives examples of SRTS programs that successfully reduced speeding and distracted driving in their areas, thereby decreasing safety risks for child pedestrians. The third resource will be available soon.
