In partnership with the Virginia Transportation Research Council (VTRC) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), UVA CTS recently launched the Safety Circuit Rider (SCR) program to serve transportation agencies in Virginia.
There are nearly 58,000 miles of state-maintained interstate, primary and secondary roads in Virginia. An additional 11,000 miles of streets and roadways are maintained by cities, towns and local agencies. To make significant progress in reducing the number of crashes and fatalities in Virginia, the safety on local roadways requires attention. This is the primary goal of the SCR program, as promoted by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
The SCR program was designed to provide safety-related information, training and support to agencies responsible for roadway safety. SCR programs can take many forms including technical assistance, training and technology transfer, but always with a focus on safety. Services are provided for local agencies lacking the resources or technical expertise to properly identify, diagnose and treat traffic safety problems.
