​Phoenix Road Safety Action Plan 

Project ​Overview

The Street Transportation Department's mission is to “provide for the safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods within the city, and support citywide infrastructure projects to improve the quality of life in Phoenix."  

Understanding the importance of safety as a core function of the department, and due to recent data trending in a negative direction, Phoenix is investing in a comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan (RSAP) that will further the city's current efforts and provide a framework and key strategies for safety enhancem​ents citywide. ​

Community Engagement

Community engagement is integral to the formation of an actionable plan. The input of those who travel Phoenix's roadways, whether driving, walking or biking, will be key to make streets safer for everyone. To facilitate meaningful input, two points of engagement will be conducted during fall/winter 2021 and winter/spring 2022, to include:

  • Virtual and in-person meetings (citywide and Council District level)
  • An online and printed survey
  • Attending community events
  • Hosting other opportunities

The Four E's of Traffic Safety

The Street Transportation Department has been proactively investing in the Four E's of Traffic Safety: Evaluation, Engineering, Enforcement and Education. The Phoenix RSAP will further integrate the 4 E's and provide a road map for the city to hone a 'safety first' proactive stance in reducing roadway related fatalities and injuries.

  • Evaluation is benchmarking efforts to measure effectiveness of implemented initiatives
  • Engineering identifies tools and resources needed to successfully address roadway safety items that include roadway design, traffic engineering, maintenance, operation and planning
  • Enforcement is ensuring users of the roadway are following the rules
  • Education is conducting communication campaigns and initiatives that promote and teach safe roadway user behavior including people driving, riding transit, walking and bicycling​Four E.JPG
