FREE Traffic Safety Evaluation Service www.techtransfer.berkeley.edu/tse
- Does your city or county have a "hot-spot" or a nagging safety concern? If so, our free traffic safety evaluation service could help.
Upon request, two safety experts will visit with your traffic engineering and police departments. They will spend two days reviewing high-crash locations, traffic operations, safety programs, traffic records, and other areas you identify.
Traffic Safety Evaluations are FREE for California cities and counties. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
