The 2014-2019 Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a plan:

  • To reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries
  • That includes all roadway users
  • For all Minnesota traffic safety advocates
  • That recognizes the complicated relationship between crash types and promotes strategic partnerships to impact safety
  • Informed by input from traffic safety professionals and advocates of many disciplines
  • Informed by data!

Background

The Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan meets the requirements of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). This Act authorized Highway Trust Funds programs for Federal Fiscal Years 2012 through 2014, designated required performance measures for state safety programs, and required states to update their Strategic Highway Safety Plans.
