Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan
The Minnesota SHSP is a tool that identifies key areas to focus traffic safety resources and provides data driven, actionable strategies to reduce deaths and serious injuries on Minnesota roadways. Every five years, Minnesota updates the SHSP to reflect current and emerging crash trends and incorporate emerging safety strategies. The 2020-2024 Minnesota SHSP (PDF) was developed by blending crash data analysis with input from the many diverse stakeholders working toward zero deaths on Minnesota roads. Targeted input to shape the SHSP’s focus areas, strategies, and tactics was gathered from stakeholders through multiple activities and venues, including the 2018 and 2019 TZD Statewide Conferences, the 2019 TZD Regional Workshops, and during meetings with the SHSP Steering Committee.
