Institutionalizing the Safe System Approach in Transportation Planning and Programming

(NCHRP 08-171)

The Safe System approach is part of an international effort to protect roadway users, and reduce roadway fatalities and serious injuries. Commitment and collective action by stakeholders such as planners, roadway system designers and managers, roadway users, law enforcement, and vehicle manufacturers, contributes to a positive safety culture. Equitable Cities and Fehr and Peers are developing a practical toolkit for State Departments of Transportation that highlights proven, innovative, and emerging strategies to institutionalize the Safe System approach throughout planning and programming processes. This toolkit will engage agency practitioners in focus groups to ensure usefulness and practicality in the toolkit design.
