Sign Up Now To Participate In Neighborhood Road Safety Awareness Program

Be Super Safe

The City of Seattle is looking for volunteers to sign up to be a "Neighbor for Road Safety," a new community program to increase road safety in every corner of Seattle and mobilize Seattle residents to help raise awareness of road safety issues in their communities." The  program was launched by Mayor Mike McGinn and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).

The information says:
The Neighbors for Road Safety program will create a link between neighbors, neighborhoods, and the City in an effort to raise awareness about specific and local road safety issues, increase knowledge of the rules of the road, and provide neighbors with the tools they need to address road safety issues.
Volunteers will commit to working with the Seattle Department of Transportation and other departments to help reduce traffic collisions and improve road safety for all

Participants who sign up to be a Neighbor for Road Safety will have the following resources available to them:
  • educational materials
  • hard data on neighborhood-specific road safety issues
  • a neighborhood-specific presentation
  • a Be Super Safe comic addressing the most common causes for collisions
  • monthly communications about road safety issues
  • information on projects happening in peoples’ neighborhoods – including projects that are new facilities people might not be familiar with
  • direct access to SDOT’s Community Traffic Liaison to develop strategies to address local needs
