Vermont is one of 19 states that have partnered with the lead agency, Montana Department of Transportation, in the Traffic Safety Culture Transportation Pooled Fund Program. The program is a cooperative effort of participating state departments of transportation (DOTs) and other (traditional and non-traditional) organizations with a vested interest in traffic safety. The long-term partnership supports an evolving and integrated project portfolio developed and revised annually by the partners. This work complements other related research activities, such as National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) 17-69: A Strategic Approach to Transforming Traffic Safety Culture to Reduce Deaths and Injuries. Together, these projects will help accelerate the development and delivery of tools and services to transform the national, state, and community-level traffic safety culture. The goal of this transformation is to support the Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) vision with sustainable traffic safety solutions. The Vermont Agency of Transportation has committed funding through phase two, which concludes in 2024. Research documents, including presentations and reports, are available online.
