The Louisiana Center for Transportation Safety (LCTS) provides a foundation and mechanism to facilitate the development of sustainable systems to improve highway safety and achieve the goal of zero deaths on Louisiana's roads.

 

LCTS will expand LTRC's highway safety initiatives through applied and theoretical safety-related research projects; workforce development and training of current transportation professionals; academic program enhancements for college-attending students in transportation and safety-related disciplines; technical assistance about practical application of effective infrastructure and non-infrastructure safety countermeasures; collaboration with state and local highway safety professionals to address prioritized safety areas through coalitions; outreach to local government municipalities to promote funding programs that utilizes federal-aid funds for safety improvements on locally owned and maintained roads; and knowledge transfer support through technology to build a comprehensive program serving more stakeholders and customers.
