Washington State Strategic Highway Safety Plan 2013

Each state must have a Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) and Washington’s is called Target Zero . It is created through a collaboration of traffic safety professionals and activists from many different organizations and disciplines: engineers from Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and local public works; Tribal and city police, county sheriffs’ deputies, and troopers from State Patrol; medical professionals from hospitals and public health agencies; and other people from every corner of the state dedicated to making our roads safer .Target Zero is a “practitioner’s plan” intended to unite the contributing organizations as well as traffic safety organizations statewide . The plan will help coordinate traffic safety programs, better align priorities and strategies, and have a common language and approach to traffic safety efforts across Washington State. The plan is data driven, identifying the factors contributing to fatal and serious injury collisions on Washington roads, as well as listing proven and recommended strategies for reducing traffic deaths and serious injuries .
