Strategic Highway Safety Plan
Several agencies have long strived to reduce fatalities and injuries on Utah’s highways. These agencies formally joined forces to create the Utah Safety Leadership Committee. This allows Utah to take a comprehensive, coordinated approach to improving traffic safety. The Utah Strategic Highway Safety Plan is the culmination of the joint efforts of these agencies and sets the direction for our collective safety efforts in the future.
The purpose of the Utah Comprehensive Safety Plan is to identify high payoff strategies using a partnership approach to reduce the number of fatalities and injuries. The Plan does not address every safety strategy currently being implemented in the state, but focuses primarily upon strategies with the greatest potential to reduce crashes and injuries. The Plan acts as the guiding document that directs the development of specific goals, strategies and performance measures for the individual agencies.
