Safety Circuit Rider Program

Iowa's Safety Circuit Rider program presents transportation safety-related workshops to local governments and other groups and offers suggestions for improving roadway safety.

Many of the workshops are given anywhere local agencies have space—in meeting rooms, shops, or garages.

The Circuit Rider also provides programs on work zone safety, MUTCD requirements, retro-reflectivity, roadside safety, excavation safety, pavement markings, and much more.
