*POSTPONED* Data-Driven Countermeasures for Traffic Safety – Webinar

  • January 19, 2022January 20, 2022
  • 8:00 am–4:00 pm

PLEASE NOTE: Your application to participate in this course and the pre-requisite documents must be submitted by 12 noon on January 5, 2022 to David Maruca at dem200@soe.rutgers.edu

This hands-on course will provide Project Managers and Grant Writers the tools necessary to extract data related to crash prone areas, develop and submit a grant to the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, implement proven countermeasures and strategies to proactively address traffic safety issue(s), and measure the impact of their intervention(s). This course will take you step-by-step on how to utilize the Crash Analysis Tool (CAT) in a computer lab or webinar by first developing queries for your specific town that identify crash prone locations. Those queries will be saved and exported to form the justification for your DHTS grant proposal.

Agencies will receive grant writing training and develop a grant proposal and budget related to their data points utilizing the DHTS Sage System with support from experienced grantees and grantors. This will be followed by receiving approval from command staff and business/financial administrators to submit the grant to DHTS for consideration.
NHTSA’s proven countermeasures will be discussed, and other traffic safety organizations will provide presentations to assist the attendees in selecting the proper strategies to implement.  At the conclusion on the grant, an after-action presentation will be delivered by grantees outlining their program’s challenges and successes.
This course is free and opened to Municipal, County, and State Agencies as well as Non-Profits statewide, but agencies must meet all the prerequisites to include completing the attached questionnaire and submitting a letter of support for acceptance.
