  27. 27. 27 Traffic Safety Programs must be both ACCOUNTABLE and EFFECTIVE. The overall goal of the traffic safety program is to reduce pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities and serious injuries resulting from traffic crashes. What Counts? Outcomes count. While most behavioral programs measure effectiveness by output, this program looks at the outcomes that result from those output. This is called an Impact Evaluation. When making recommendations keep in mind the degree of influence the recommendation has on resolving the issue. What Can’t Be Counted? Activities and costs vital to the success of the program, such as outreach to increase awareness of traffic laws, is difficult, if not impossible to count. We know these things are necessary, and complete administrative evaluations that provides a complete description of activities and costs of these types of items. These types of items should be included in your recommendations, but note they should be vital to the success of the program.
