Welcome to the Tampa Bay
Community Traffic Safety Teams

Made possible with support from the Florida Department of Transportation and local agencies in Tampa Bay

​​What is CTST?

​The Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST) is a multi-disciplined Federal, State and local government endorsed program developed to reduce the number of traffic crashes that occur on Florida roadways. The program is managed by the Florida Department of Transportation and supported by a wide range of community partners, such as: cities, counties, law enforcement, first responders, school districts, St. Joseph's Hospital Wellness and Safety Center, John Hopkins All Children's Hospital, Tampa General Hospital, Safe Kids, health care advocacy groups, MADD, Tampa Alcohol Coalition, Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR), and more.​

The members of the committees work towards this goal by addressing the Four Es:

Goals of the CTST

The teams undertake traffic safety-related projects and activities and serve as a resource to any and all communities, local government agencies, and roadway users.  The CTSTs overall goal is not only the reduction of serious and fatal injury crashes, but assisting in reaching Zero Fatalities on Florida roadways.​
