Washington Traffic Safety Commission

The Washington Traffic Safety Commission was started in 1967 to promote traffic safety through educational campaigns, law enforcement support and roadway engineering solutions. The Commission is a small state agency with 19 employees and a yearly budget of $15 million. Most of the funding is provided by the United States Department of Transportation through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This funding is largely dispensed in the form of grants to law enforcement, other state and local government agencies, and non-profits who partner with the Commission to promote traffic safety through education, enforcement, and engineering solutions.

The goal of the Washington Traffic Safety Commission is to prevent fatal and serious injury collisions on Washington roadways. To achieve this goal, the Commission conducts and supports impaired driving programs such as the Drive Hammered-Get Nailed campaign, occupant protection programs such as Click It or Ticket, speed reduction programs, and pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle programs.

Other public safety campaigns that the Traffic Safety Commission supports include:

  • Promoting booster seat and child car seat use;
  • Combating distracted driving;
  • Working with local communities to provide safety improvements on roadways with high crash rates;
  • Increasing the knowledge of Intermediate Drivers' License (IDL) rules for teen drivers and their parents;
  • Reducing speeding in school and playground zones;
  • Improving training accessibility for commissioned law enforcement.
