Tribal Transportation Safety Assessment (TTSA)
Needs assessment for the Karuk Tribe (Happy Camp, 2019)
UC Berkeley SafeTREC is inviting 12 California Tribes to apply for the next round of Tribal Transportation Safety Assessments (TTSAs), beginning October 2022 and to be completed by September 30, 2023. TTSA studies will be based on the tribal communities' input about their transportation choices, challenges and opportunities, and can help tribal staff and leadership plan and prioritize safety improvements for all travel modes (walking, bicycling, transit, driving) on tribal roads and pathways, and on roads accessing tribal lands. Tribal staff can also use the TTSA reports in support of their funding applications.
Funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), TTSAs are FREE to California tribes.
TTSA engagements include:
- Collision data analysis by SafeTREC staff
- Community engagement survey to understand household transportation choices, challenges and opportunities. (Online and/or printed)
- With Tribal staff, selection of several focus (study) areas on or near Tribal lands (intersections, corridors, paths, or routes including walk/bike to schools)
- One-day on-site field visit by a safety expert (walk-audit/drive-about)
- Detailed illustrated report of findings with analyses, suggestions and concepts
