A Vision for Safety for ALL Modes of Transportation and for Users of ALL Ages and Abilities.


The Culver City Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) is a living document that identifies conditions that contribute to collisions within the City and recommends potential traffic safety improvements tailored to Culver City’s unique traffic needs and issues. The LSRP is aligned with the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration’s goal to reduce transportation related fatalities and severe injuries across the transportation system and vision of zero deaths and severe injuries.

Traffic safety planning is a comprehensive system-wide, multi-modal, data driven and proactive transportation planning process that integrates safety into surface transportation decision-making. Federal regulations require each state to have a Strategic Highway Safety Plan. A Local Road Safety Plan provides local and rural road owners with an opportunity to address unique highway safety needs in their jurisdictions. Culver City was allocated a grant by Caltrans to develop its first LRSP. The LRSP will assist the City to secure future funding for Plan-related projects. 

The LRSP begins by establishing goals and objectives, and follows with a data driven systemic safety analysis conducted using the City’s historic collision database, identifying high-risk intersections, roadway segments, and mid-block locations. The LRSP takes a proactive approach and sets a vision for continued safety for all modes of transportation through identification of strategies under the E’s: Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Emerging Technologies and Evaluation, which together provide a framework to accomplish safety enhancements. The LRSP further prioritizes a list of improvements that will help the City apply for funding opportunities.

Future City efforts and investments towards plan implementation will ensure safety for all modes of transportation for users of all ages and abilities .
