The Transportation Safety and Advisory Commission reviews transportation (motor vehicle, bicycles, pedestrians, etc.) safety matters that are submitted to them either by citizens or by city staff and provides recommendations to the City on how to address the problem. Some issues reviewed have included: locations where multiple crashes occurred, a significant accident has occurred or concern that there may be a future accident; complaints about poor sight distance at an intersection; evaluation of the location of a new crosswalk before installation; or proposed changes in traffic patterns to improve safety.
