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. The plan:
- Identifies the priority emphasis areas Alaska will address over a five-year period;
- Uses data to select critical factors contributing to crashes and the potential solutions;
- Establishes common performance goals for reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries;
- Provides proven strategies and actions to address each of the emphasis areas;
- Complements and urges incorporation into other safety plans at the state, regional, and local levels; and
- Monitors process and performance to determine where Alaska is making progress and where there is a need for more effort.
