What is a Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP)?

An SHSP is a statewide data-driven traffic safety plan that coordinates the efforts of a wide range of organizations to reduce traffic accident fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. In coordination with federal, state, local and private sector safety stakeholders, the SHSP establishes goals, objectives, and emphasis (or challenge) areas.

We Want To Hear From You:

The SHSP is a collaborative process and will be most effective with input from a wide range of people and agencies. The SHSP team is very interested in your input. Please provide your comments or ideas about how to improve transportation safety in Connecticut by clicking here.
