Local Press Kit

On behalf of the National Transportation Operations Coalition (NTOC) and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), we would like to thank the 417 agencies that participated in the 2007 National Traffic Signal Report Card Self Assessment. The results of the assessment are documented in the 2007 National Traffic Signal Report Card Technical Report and Executive Summary. These documents were released in conjunction with the national press event, held on Tuesday, October 9, at 9:30 a.m. ET, at Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC.

The materials are available to assist you in preparing a release of your agency’s scores, if you so choose. You will find tips and timelines, a sample media advisory, sample press release and graphics you can use for your own press conference. All the forms are in an html format so you can easily cut and paste them into your letterhead.

For questions about the 2007 National Traffic Signal Report Card, contact Doug Noble at 202-785-0060 ext. 148 or dnoble@ite.org or ITE’s Media Production Senior Director, Marianne Saglam, at 202-785-0060 ext. 123 or msaglam@ite.org.
