Abington Traffic Summit is at Penn State Abington on May 9, 2012, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Officials from the state, county and township will be present to look at the impact of traffic on our local economy. Please complete the survey (to the right) and your input will be factored-into the things discussed at the Summit – including case studies.
A Local Traffic Advisory Committee (LTAC) is an option offered by PennDOT. Its Traffic Calming Handbook recommends that citizens work together with officials to identify what can realistically be done to improve traffic safety conditions in a municipality. RMCA will begin forming this Committee on May 9. If you express an interest in serving on this committee, the minimum commitment is to report traffic accidents you learn about. This will allow the LTAC to maintain records that can be presented to PennDOT District 6-0 in the event that 70% of the community wishes to make a change in Abington Township.
Traffic and Pedestrian Safety - Survey
Abington's first Traffic Summit will be held at Penn State Abington on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Please consider joining us and being part of a long-term solution.
This event is intended to educate residents on the constraints of the law and discuss what the community envisions for the future of traffic in Abington. Please respond to this survey and the results will impact what is covered in this first Summit. We will present a Summit every two years if the community shows interest and supports the idea of improving traffic and safety conditions.
