Opportunity to Improve Traffic Safety

Prescott, Ariz. – With 44 fatal crashes in the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO) region in the past five years, the traffic safety campaign states, “There is No Room for One More Fatality!”

CYMPO and its design team, Burgess & Niple, Inc., are analyzing crash data to determine the primary causes and identify potential projects and educational efforts which could reduce the number of crashes. However, input from drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians is a vital element.

“We want the public to let us know what they have observed and experienced on the roadways and areas of concern. This information is valuable because it alerts us to potential dangers that we may not be aware of before a fatal crash occurs,” said Chris Bridges, CYMPO Administrator.

An online survey at, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CYMPO has been established to gather input from the community to identify unsafe driving behaviors and locations where there are concerns about safety. There is also an opportunity to place virtual pinpoints on a map to identify worrisome areas and leave comments for the team.

For those who prefer to communicate directly, the team can be reached via email at CYMPOsafetyplan@gciaz.com or by mailing comments to GCI, 67 E. Weldon, Suite 103, Phoenix, AZ 85012.

The survey process is part of the Northern Arizona Council of Governments (NACOG) Strategic Transportation Safety Plan designed to understand current conditions, identify strategies to reduce the number of crashes, and implement solutions for safer travel in the region. The survey link is specific for the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization’s region included in the study. To view CYMPO boundaries visit: https://www.cympo.org/about-cympo/.
