Multi-Discipline Safety Team

Mission: To build effective safety collaboration and trusted relationships among enforcement, engineering, and other traffic safety-related disciplines through ongoing stakeholder meetings where local traffic safety issues are addressed.

Iowa’s Statewide Multi-Discipline Safety Team (MDST) Program is a coordinated effort between Iowa Local Technical Assistance Program, Iowa Department of Transportation, and the Iowa Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau. This joint effort supports the opportunity to help facilitate the development and operation of local multi-discipline safety teams to help identify and resolve local crash causes and enhance crash response practices. These teams include a wide range of local and state safety participants from various backgrounds. These professionals meet on a regular basis to discuss safety topics, problems, projects, and improvements along local roadways within regional areas of Iowa.
