Welcome to Streets are for Everyone (SAFE), Bellevue’s Neighborhood Traffic Safety Services Blog. Here you will find information, resources, and ways to connect with Bellevue city staff and residents that can help make your streets a safer place to drive while improving livability in your neighborhood!
The blog is maintained by the Bellevue Transportation Department’s Neighborhood Traffic Safety Services group. What exactly does NTSS do and how can they help you?
NTSS services can…
- Discourage excessive vehicle speeds
- Minimize cut-through traffic
- Reduce overflow parking
- Encourage walking and biking
How do these things happen?
They happen with your help. You have rich knowledge of your neighborhood and its streets. Combined with the technical and engineering expertise of city staff, residents can work with staff to address traffic safety concerns.
The first step to alerting staff about a traffic safety concern is by completing a request for action (RFA) form, found on the City of Bellevue website. There you will identify the concern and location and staff will get back to you with the next step in adderssing the issue.
In the future, this blog will be updated every other Monday and will contain traffic safety tips, links to articles and stories about traffic concerns, services that the city offers to make neighborhood streets safer, and more. In the meantime, be sure to connect with other City of Bellevue social media (on the right side of this page) to keep current on issues and events around the City.
