1
AASHTO Strategic Highway Safety Plan
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF STATE HIGHWAY AND
TRANSPORTATION OFFICIALS
2
The Problem - Today
  • Highway deaths 43,443 in 2005

The fatality rate is unacceptably high 1.47
deaths per 100 million VMT
3
The Problem Tomorrow
Of every 90 children born this year
One will die violently in a highway crash during
his/her lifetime.
70 of every 100 will be injured in a crash during
their lifetimessome more than once.
4
The Goal
  • Reduce the incidence and severity of motor
    vehicle crashes.
  • Lower the rate to not more than 1 fatality per
    100 million VMT
  • And

5
Save Lives
Prevent 9,000 deaths each year in traffic
crashes.
Reduce the highway death rate by one-third.
6
Added Benefit to Society
  • Drive down the costs to society of motor
    vehicle crashes.

Total economic cost of roadway crashes 230
billion a year.
7
How Can We Do It?
  • Involve all agencies with a safety mission
  • Engineers, law enforcement, EMS, licensing,
    judiciary, behavioral
  • Establish Integrated Safety Management
    Process
  • Identify Significant Safety Problems
  • Focus on road users, highway, vehicle,
    environment, and management system
  • Launch Coordinated Attack on Problems
