About the Community Traffic Safety Coalition
The Community Traffic Safety Coalition (CTSC) was formed in 1992 and has been very successful in developing creative partnerships to reduce injuries to bicyclists and pedestrians. Members include community organizations, government agencies, businesses and individuals representing law enforcement, transportation, public works, DMV, education, health and injury prevention, parents, bicycling advocacy, retailers, and manufacturers.

In 1995, the CTSC formed a group in Watsonville, now called the South County Bicycle and Pedestrian Work Group (SCBPWG), to address the unique needs in this part of the county. Both the CTSC and SCBPWG are exceptional examples of the power of collaboration to accomplish a community's goals.

Mission Statement
To reduce traffic-related injuries, while promoting the use of alternative modes of transportation. The primary focus is on bicycle and pedestrian safety issues. The CTSC educates all road users in safety practices to decrease the risk and severity of collisions, and advocates for improved conditions to make all methods of transportation safer.

Both the CTSC and SCBPWG meet bi-monthly on the first Tuesday according to the schedules below. CTSC meetings are held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the County of Santa Cruz Health Services Agency campus, 1060 Emeline Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95060 in the Solarium.
