MAG’s Transportation Safety Planning program strives to identify current and potential future transportation related safety issues, concerns, and needs in the region, and determine ways to address them through the MAG Regional Transportation Planning process. The discussion of road safety issues at the regional level began at the first annual MAG Regional Transportation Safety Forum. Topics such as Safe Access to Schools, Reducing Red Light Running, Introducing Road Safety Audits and producing an annual report on Road Safety in the region were listed as goals in a Safety Action Plan the group developed.
The Safe Routes to School Program consists of providing resources for schools and municipalities to administer Safe Routes to School (SRTS) initiatives and activities.
The Maricopa Association of Governments Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Education and Enforcement program provides regional resources for improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety in the region.
