Headquartered in the City of Auburn Hills, the Traffic Improvement Association of Michigan (TIA) is a non-profit traffic safety agency that serves approximately seventy member communities in Michigan.
Created in 1967 by more than two-hundred business and government leaders, TIA's mission is to identify traffic safety trends that negatively impact society, and develop solutions that can be implemented to save lives, reduce injuries, and improve mobility in Michigan.
The Board of Directors consists of representatives from the accounting, automotive, civil engineering, education, law enforcement, and public official sectors. TIA's successful traffic management model is unique worldwide. In a 2006 Federal Highway Administration publication titled, "Innovative Intersection Safety Improvement Strategies and Management Practices: A Domestic Scan," TIA and the Road Commission for Oakland County were recognized as a best practice.
As a result of a strong partnership between TIA, the Road Commission for Oakland County, law enforcement, and member communities, Oakland County roads are now among the safest in the world.
