Iowa Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau (GTSB)

Each state is required to have a highway safety program directed by guidelines of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Iowa Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau (GTSB) is a subdivision of the Iowa Department of Public Safety and fulfills this requirement. 

The GTSB administers the State of Iowa's allocation of federal highway safety funds authorized on December 4, 2015, when President Obama signed into law P.L.114-94, Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. It authorizes the federal surface transportation programs for highways, highway safety and transit.

Mission Statement

To identify traffic safety issues and, through partnerships with city, county, state and local organizations, develop and implement strategies to reduce deaths and injuries on Iowa's roadways using federally-funded grants to improve traffic safety in the State of Iowa.

Vision

A place where motorists, pedestrians and cyclists share the safest roads in the nation.
