Arizona Strategic Highway Safety Plan

2019 Arizona Strategic Highway Safety Plan Update

ADOT and its partners have initiated an update to the Arizona Strategic Highway Safety Plan.  Last completed in 2014, the SHSP is a statewide coordinated safety plan that provides a comprehensive framework for reducing roadway fatalities and serious injuries on Arizona’s public roads.  

As part of the SHSP Update, ADOT is hosting a Safety Summit on Monday, February 11, 2019, from 1:00 p.m. – 4 p.m., at the ADOT HRDC, 1130 N. 22nd Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona 85009.  You are invited! The Safety Summit will be an opportunity to learn more and provide your input into how we, working together, can reduce fatalities and serious injuries on Arizona’s roadways.  


Federal regulations require all states to have a Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) that provides a comprehensive framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on public roadways. The state's Department of Transportation leads development of its SHSP in cooperation with local, state, federal and other safety stakeholders. Under the completed SHSP, all highway safety programs in the state can leverage resources and work together to address transportation safety issues.

In August 2014, the Arizona SHSP Executive Committee approved the Arizona 2014 Strategic Highway Safety Plan. The current plan has been developed in consultation with a broad array of transportation safety stakeholders through the state representing the each of the 4 E’s of safety: Engineering, Education, Enforcement and Emergency Medical Services. The plan and its current supporting appendices are available for download:
