Traffic Safety

It is the MDOT's mission into provide a safe transportation environment for all road users in Mississippi. The Safety Section of MDOT was created to help MDOT achieve its goal of providing safer roads and reducing the number of fatal and serious injury crashes within our state.


MDOT's Safety Education Programs
use tools, such as simulators, videos and lectures. MDOT provides community outreach and education, encouraging preventative safety measures for schools and safety events.

The Safe Route to Schools program strives to enable and encourage all children in Kindergarten through 8th Grade to walk and bicycle safely to and from school.
