For more than 40 years, the Transportation Improvement Association (TA) has helped develop safety improvement projects after analyzing crash data. These individual changes over time have contributed to a dramatic reduction of traffic fatalities and severe crashes in member communities. To provide technical expertise in helping to develop these projects TIA, has had a licensed and insured professional traffic engineer (P.E.) on staff.
For the past 10 years, TIA has been active with ITS technologies and, during various time periods, has participated as a Board member of ITS Michigan and executive director of this statewide organization. With the positive safety impact of the FAST-TRAC traffic signal system, and working on education projects with MDOT and the automotive companies, TIA feels strongly that technology plays a significant role in reducing traffic deaths and injuries.
