Traffic Commission

Appointed By: Select Board

The Traffic Commission is an advisory-only board. The Traffic Commission meets 4-6 times annually. Meetings and locations are posted on the town's public meeting calendar and citizens are welcome to attend and speak. Any recommendations made by the Traffic Commission regarding changes to Massachusetts General Law or the Town of Milton Bylaws are then submitted to the Select Board for approval and implementation. The Traffic Commission studies the traffic situation in town and advises the Select Board on ways and means to regulate traffic in the town and increase public safety.  The Traffic Commission recommends to the Select Board changes and amendments to the Traffic Rules and Orders of the town with a view towards reducing crashes and relieving traffic congestion throughout town. Given the number of cars that travel our roads each day, this objective often proves to be very challenging.

Note - The Traffic Commission does not review traffic enforcement issues. All enforcement authority lies solely with the police department.
