The Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan
September 10, 2015
About the Presentation
The Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) provides insight and direction on how to reduce motor vehicle traffic crashes on all Minnesota roads. Developed in consultation with safety stakeholders from education, emergency medical and trauma services, enforcement, engineering, and other disciplines, the SHSP presents a view of the statewide crash record. It also identifies focus area priorities and strategies to keep moving toward a goal of zero deaths on Minnesota roads. In addition, the SHSP highlights opportunities for collaboration and provides targets and performance measures to chart progress.
This presentation discussed the development of the SHSP and how it is being used to focus safety efforts in the state to maximize the reduction in fatal and serious injury crashes. It also highlighted how the SHSP, Highway Safety Improvement Program, and the Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths program support the improvement of safety on all Minnesota roadways.
