South Central Regional Safety Coalition

The South Central Regional Safety Coalition, formerly known as the South Central Safe Community Partnership (SCSCP), is a traffic safety coalition comprised of multidisciplinary partners/agencies throughout the parishes of Assumption, Lafourche, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Mary and Terrebonne.

Tasked with the implementation of the regional version of the LA Strategic Highway Safety Plan, coined the South Central Regional Transportation Safety Plan (http://www.scpdc.org/wp-content/uploads/SCRTSP-Updated-Feb-2013_withAug2013Status.pdf) , the dedicated team of partners are charged with implementing highway safety projects and programs across the South Central Region in an effort to reduce fatalities and serious injuries in the region by 50% by 2030.

Utilizing the 4E Approach (Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Emergency Medical Services), our South Central Regional Safety Coalition partners, in collaboration with Federal Highway Administration, Louisiana DOTD, Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, the Houma-Thibodaux MPO and other LA Metropolitan Planning Organizations, LSU Highway Safety Research Group, Louisiana Transportation Research Center, and other federal, state, regional and local partners work together to analyze data, identify strategies, prioritize resources and implement data-driven action steps from our 5 emphasis areas:

  • Impaired Driving (alcohol & drugged related)
  • Occupant Protection (proper restraint of adults, teens, children and infants)10352_dotd_zerodeathslogo
  • Crashes Involving Young Drivers (15-24 years of age involved in a crash)
  • Infrastructure & Operations (Roadway Departure & Intersection related crashes)
