LTAP’s Local Road Safety Program (LRSP) is in the process of facilitating a second round of Crash Data Workshops for parishes and municipalities in collaboration with each of the 9 Louisiana Regional Safety Coalitions. Additionally, LRSP staff is available to meet with local jurisdictions interested in preparing a Local Road Safety Plan and/or applying for LRSP funding to implement transportation safety projects on the roads that they own.
The Build a Better Mousetrap National Competition highlights innovative solutions to everyday problems and issues that local and tribal transportation workers and other LTAP/TTAP clients encounter. They can range from the development of tools, equipment modifications, and/or processes that increase safety, reduce cost, improve efficiency and the quality of transportation. Have a better idea that you have implemented in your agency? Submit it for the competition! Entries are due May 4.
