SafeTREC is conducting a pilot survey about traffic safety culture in California and is seeking online participants. This survey covers a limited range of traffic safety topics to refine questions that may be included in a broader study in the future. The results of the larger study will help to understand 
perspectives and attitudes about traffic safety in order to inform safety strategies.

Our Community Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Training (CPBST) program with California Walks is a four-hour, community-based workshop designed to help local advocates and community members develop pedestrian safety action plans that leverage best practices, promote walkability and ensure community engagement.
