This meeting's topic is enforcement and traffic safety. Each RSTF meeting focuses on a critical road safety issue facing the Delaware Valley region. This meeting’s focus is on the role of enforcement strategies in transportation safety planning, a topic that has grown in interest since racial justice protests began in earnest this past summer.

DVRPC conducted a series of interviews on this topic with a variety of stakeholders beginning last summer, which has culminated in this program. The goal of this meeting is to create a forum for sharing perspectives and best practice research that RSTF members can apply to their work advancing traffic safety in the region. 

Established in September 2005, the Regional Safety Task Force brings together a multi-disciplinary group of professionals to identify safety goals, strategies and resources. The goal of the Task Force is to build and maintain effective partnerships with the purpose of reaching zero casualties from crashes in the region.
