This series of annual workshops is funded by the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT), Office of Traffic and Safety. Planning and presentations for the workshops are provided by several co-sponsors, including the Iowa DOT Systems Planning and Local Systems offices, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) – Iowa Division, Governors Traffic Safety Bureau (GTSB), and the Iowa Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). These workshops are presented annually at convenient locations in Iowa to provide the most current information and advice for improving safety on local agencies’ roads and streets in terms of planning, law enforcement, education, and engineering


Who Should Attend?

Interested professionals from planning agencies, law enforcement, engineering, consulting, and other disciplines from all levels of government are provided an opportunity to meet, learn, interact, and share experiences, opinions, and suggestions for strengthening and expanding the overall safety program for local roads and streets in Iowa, often resulting addressing identified safety concerns in an effective multi-disciplinary manner. Crash data is also summarized, graphed, and provided to each local agency in attendance.
