Overview

Cape Cod Commission staff work on a number of transportation safety initiatives at both the regional and local levels.

 

Top Crash Locations Report

As new data becomes available, Cape Cod Commission compiles a list of the top crash locations in the region. The information provided in these report serves as a resource to make Cape Cod safer for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Cape Cod Commission staff will work with local and state partners to use this report to prioritize locations for future Road Safety Audits. This list will also serve as a resource for transportation safety professionals looking to make strategic investments to improve safety in the region.
