Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP)


The SHSP is a major part of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act has continued HSIP as an important federal-aid program to assist state departments of transportation (DOTs).

SHSP is a coordinated safety plan on the state level that provides states with a framework for reducing serious injuries and fatalities on our nation’s roadways. A SHSP identifies a state’s safety needs and guides DOTs with investment decisions toward proven and effective countermeasures.

The comprehensive plan establishes goals, objectives, and focus areas for each state that focus on education, engineering, emergency medical services, and enforcement. SHSPs provide state partners with an ability to align goals and priorities, leverage resources, and address roadway safety challenges.
