Abstract: Introduction: The Life in Traffic Program (LTP) was launched in Brazil in 2010, aiming to promote road safety interventions capable of reducing deaths and serious injuries resulting from traffic collisions. The LTP methodology was based on four steps: intersectoral articulation, data quali fication and integration, integrated actions of road safety, and monitoring of actions. Objective: To determine the degree of implementation of the program in 31 Brazilian municipalities. Method: Formal and normative evaluations were adopted, in two phases. In the first one, the content of 28 indicators uniquely developed to evaluate the LTP implementation was verified by a panel of experts composed of 29 program coordinators in the Brazilian municipalities. A Likert scale was used, followed by a comparison of the interquartile range (IQR). In the second phase, the degree of implementation was evaluated based on baseline and follow-up interview applied in 2015 and 2017, defined through a system of scores, with weights differentiated for each indicator, according to the level of importance assigned by the experts, thus constituting the matrix of analysis and judgment. Results: Thirty municipalities participated in the 2015 evaluation and 26, in 2017. The indicators of implementation achieved high degree of consensus among the experts, suggesting adequacy of the instrument. Regarding the implementation, the LTP was partially or totally implemented in 84.6% of the 31 Brazilian municipalities. Municipalities in the North region (71.8%) had the highest degree of implementation, followed by South (71.2%), Central West (68.5%), Northeast (62.4%), and Southeast (58.8%). Monitoring of actions implemented was the LTP methodology step with the lowest performance detected among them.
