The Michigan TIM Action Team was created as part of Michigan’s Strategic Highway Safety Program (SHSP) and reports to the Governor’s Traffic Safety Advisory Commission (GTSAC). Progress towards the Action Team’s goals were the subject of this research project. Research included responder workshops, literature reviews, leadership visioning, and a new survey of 1,200 Michigan motorists. Results of all those activities are presented here as an evaluation of progress. The research also resulted in recommendations for investment in a strategic approach for future TIM programmatic efforts, including outreach to build on progress.
