Traffic Safety Working Group


Mission Statement

In 2014 the Town Board established the Traffic Safety Working Group to advise the Town Board for the following purpose:

  • Promote and encourage street and highway traffic safety.
  • Formulate street and highway safety programs and coordinate efforts of interested parties and agencies engaged in traffic safety education
  • Study traffic conditions on streets and highways, study and analyze reports of accidents and causes thereof, and recommend to the appropriate legislative bodies, departments, or commissions such changes as deemed advisable in rules, orders, regulations, and physical changes to the roadway, signage, and other components of the roadway system
  • Conduct meetings on a regular basis and invite to such meetings parties and agencies, public and private, interested in traffic regulation, control, and safety
  • Promote safety education for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
  • Obtain and assemble motor vehicle accident data, and analyze, study, and consolidate such data to evaluate potential changes to the roadway system and for educational and informational purposes
  • Coordinate and direct local activities related to the implementation of the state highway safety program, as approved by the governor or his designee
  • Make reports/recommendations to the Town Board as necessary
  • Provide a sustained and systematic mechanism and clearing house for considering concerns about traffic safety.

If you have a specific concern about an unsafe condition in your neighborhood, depending on the issue, the best place to start is with the Bedford Police Department or the Highway Department.

Should you require further information or have any questions, please feel free to contact us by email. See the meeting times and see what issues we have been working on. We meet every other month.
