A closer look

The CHSP is comprehensive in the sense that it encompasses the programs of multiple agencies and jurisdictions throughout the state. Each entity has a role in the development of the plan but retains authority over the elements for the plan that are within their jurisdiction. Participating agencies form a collaborative partnership in reducing highway crashes, injuries and deaths.

Three overarching strategies

Improve the accuracy, completeness, integration, timeliness, uniformity, and accessibility of data used in traffic safety analysis;

Support the essential role of EMS in reducing the severity of injury outcomes and the technologies and systems necessary to advance collaboration with all safety partners; and

Collaborate across agencies, organizations and with the public to improve the safety culture and promote the institutionalization of Vision Zero.
