Traffic Safety and Security Activities include the prioritization of traffic safety and security goals in Quad Cities metropolitan area and assistance with enforcement activities to reach these goals.  Bi-State staff assist with monthly meetings of the Community Awareness of Roadway Safety (CARS) interdisciplinary traffic safety team in Scott County and annually call a bi-state interdisciplinary traffic safety meeting to discuss traffic safety and regional ITS and/or operational issues.  Bi-State also prepares a biannual Crash Study for the metropolitan area that can be found on the publications page of this website.  Additionally, Bi-State staff has assisted with the development of evacuation plans for its members, public safety communications and other transportation security issues where coordination is an essential component to a safe and secure transportation network.
