Your Highway Safety Partnership in Northeast LA since February 2015
The Northeast Louisiana Highway Safety Partnership, is a traffic safety coalition comprised of multidisciplinary partners/agencies throughout the parishes of Caldwell, East Carroll, Jackson, Franklin, Lincoln, Madison, Morehouse, Ouachita, Richland, Tensas, Union, and West Carroll.
Tasked with the implementation of the regional version of the LA Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Northeast Louisiana Highway Safety Partnership Plan (http://www.northdelta.org) , the partnership is a dedicated team of partners charged with implementing highway safety projects and programs across the Northeast Region in an effort to reduce fatalities and serious injuries in the region by 50% by 2030.
Utilizing the 4E Approach (Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Emergency Medical Services), our Northeast Regional Safety Coalition partners, in collaboration with the Federal Highway Administration, Louisiana DOTD, Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, the Monroe MPO and other LA Metropolitan Planning Organizations, LSU Highway Safety Research Group, Louisiana Transportation Research Center, and other federal, state, regional and local partners work together to analyze data, identify strategies, prioritize resources and implement data-driven action steps from our 5 emphasis areas:
- Impaired Driving
- Occupant Protection
- Young Drivers
- Infrastructure & Operations
- Distracted Drivers
The Northeast Louisiana Regional Safety Coalition holds quarterly meetings each quarter in February, May, August, and November. We also have specific emphasis area focus group meetings that are scheduled throughout the year for those that are interested in working on a specific area of highway safety.
