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:

News ​

​Hurricane Irma

I hope everyone made it through Hurricane Irma safely.  If you were adversely impacted in any way, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Although the threat of the storm has passed, we know that the clean-up and recovery process will be on going.  Please remember these safety tips:

  • Use caution when approaching intersections with downed or inoperable signals and most importantly, remember that they are to be treated as a four-way (all way) stop.  
  • Always pay attention to barricades when driving. Do not ignore them and drive past them, as they are there for a reason.
  • Don't drive through standing water in roads, as a car can get swept away easily.  Misjudging the depth of the water could cause your engine to stall and leave you stranded.
  • Be careful of downed power lines.  If you see downed trees or any debris covering power lines call your local power company or law enforcement agency.  Please stay away from the downed power lines. 

Let us all be good neighbors and lend a helping hand were we can.  We are all in this together.  Please take care and be safe!

Thank you to all our law enforcement partners, first responders, utility companies, the various City and County workers, media organizations, and everyone else that are working to make our communities safe.  We appreciate all that you do!
