... • Primary Role – All those interviewed provided various forms of technical assistance to either other stakeholders or to individuals directly working on improving traffic safety in rural and/or tribal communities. • Resources or Information Utilized – The most noted resources were NHTSA's Countermeasures that Work and FHWA's Proven Safety Countermeasures (also mentioned were AASHTO documents and FHWA's Every Day Counts)
From page 112...
... – Some contexts require more cultural knowledge such as understanding historical trauma and issues of sovereignty when working with tribal communities. • Resources Needed in Rural and Tribal Areas – Lack of financial resources supporting traffic safety work was a common theme.
