Safety Programs


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.
