Strategic Highway Safety Plan
We are pleased to announce the completion of Florida’s 2021 - 2025 Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). We invite you to view and share the updated SHSP with your partners, employees, family, and friends.
Our collaborative effort has resulted in a statewide plan that provides a framework for eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. This SHSP:
- Introduces the Safe System approach, which acknowledges that humans make mistakes, the human body is vulnerable, and that we should design and operate our transportation system to ensure that if crashes do occur they do not result in serious human injury.
- Recognizes the complexity of crashes and categorizes emphasis areas into three components: roadway; road user, including demographics and mode of travel; and road user behavior.
- Expands our strategies beyond the 4Es of traffic safety: Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Emergency Response to include the 4Is: Information Intelligence, Innovation, Insight into Communities, and Investments and Policies.

Thank you to all who participated in updating the SHSP, including the Florida Transportation Plan Steering Committee and its Safety Subcommittee, Florida’s Traffic Safety Coalitions, metropolitan planning organizations, other safety partners, and the public.
Achieving zero takes everyone working together. None of us can do this alone, but we can all do something. Together, we can make progress each year – and together, we can achieve our vision of zero.
