In 1971, the Wisconsin Legislature called for the creation of a Traffic Safety Commission in every county.(Wis.Stats. 83.013) Traffic Safety Commission membership is broad-based to foster a coordinated effort among various traffic safety professionals, agencies, and representatives of citizen organizations. The commission is required to include the county highway commissioner or a designated representative, the chief county traffic law enforcement officer or a designated representative, the county highway safety coordinator, and a representative from each of the disciplines of education, medicine and law. The commission is also required to include a state patrol trooper/inspector, a highway engineer designated by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), and a traffic safety representative designated by WisDOT, Bureau of Transportation Safety. The commission meets quarterly to review traffic accident data from the county and other traffic safety related matters.
