The Tribal Injury Prevention Specialist Program provides transportation safety information, training, and technical assistance to Tribal transportation agencies responsible for roadway safety. While the primary focus is on tribal roads, the Tribal Injury Prevention Specialist will assist tribes and their partners in improving road safety in Indian Country.
Traditionally, tribal transportation safety programs focus on the Four E’s (Engineering, Education, Emergency Response, and Enforcement). The Tribal Injury Prevention Specialist Program expands the role to include behavior modification approaches in traffic safety (i.e. child passenger safety, seat belt use, impaired driving prevention).
In order to make Tribal Injury Prevention Specialist Program more effective, we would like to determine the priority transportation training and technical assistance needs for tribes. We are asking for your help in developing a comprehensive list of those needs by completing the Tribal Injury Prevention Specialist Program Tribal Transportation Needs Assessment.
