The District 12-0 Community Traffic Safety Project (CTSP) is a federally funded grant program through the PA Department of Transportation with the County of Washington and the Highway Safety Network. The project goal is to raise public awareness about highway safety issues in the PennDOT District 12-0 counties of Fayette, Greene, Washington, and Westmoreland through education, targeted enforcement campaigns and judicial support.
The District 12-0 Community Traffic Safety Project develops and implements comprehensive community traffic safety programs intended to reduce the number of traffic crashes, injuries, and deaths on our roadways. Staff is available to assist with technical and program development, training and coordination of media contacts.
The traffic safety issues that we address include, but are not limited to:

The project staff are well qualified to address any traffic safety related topics. We provide technical support to local governments, school districts, police departments, health care providers, volunteer and civic organizations, and other professional groups.
