Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP)


The Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a statewide, comprehensive safety plan that provides a coordinated framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. Consultation with Federal, state, local, and private sector safety stakeholders identified three emphasis areas for that plan.

  • Driver Behavior – Impaired Driving, Young Drivers, Older Drivers, Occupant Protection
  • Roadways – Lane Departures, Intersections, Animal-Vehicle Collisions
  • Special Users - Crashes involving pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists and off-highway vehicles

Associated with each emphasis area is a list of strategies and action steps which are a series of recommended activities and programs that can help achieve the zero fatality goal subject to funding constraints. For more information on emphasis areas you can download the document (below) or go to Emphasis Areas.
