Updating Rhode Island’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP): An RSPCB Peer Exchange

This report summarizes the peer exchange sponsored by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) held from March 18-19, 2012 in Warwick, Rhode Island. Rhode Island’s goals for the peer exchange included learning from other States’ experiences and incorporating success factors into its Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) update. RIDOT applied to the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Roadway Safety Professional Capacity Building (RSPCB) Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Program seeking technical assistance to learn from others’ experiences on the following topics: (1) Improving crash forms to better capture data on speeding, distracted driving, and toxicology; (2) Integrating databases to determine crash rates and contributing factors, as well as statistical outcomes of injury crashes; (3) Aligning Highway Safety Plan (HSP) and SHSP goals, particularly those related to “Toward Zero Deaths” (TZD); and (4) Measuring the effectiveness of the SHSP, maintaining stakeholder involvement, and incorporating the SHSP into all agency plans. Peers at the event included the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), Georgia’s Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS), and the Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT).
