Abstract Section 1401 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) amended Section 148 of Title 23 USC to create a new Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as a 'core' Federal Highway Administration program with separate funding. The purpose of the HSIP is to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roads. As part of the new HSIP, states are required to submit an annual report describing not less than 5 percent of their highway locations exhibiting the most severe safety needs. The intent of this provision is to raise public awareness of highway safety needs and challenges in the states. This report must include an assessment of: potential remedies to hazardous locations identified; estimated costs associated with remedies; and impediments to implementation other than cost.
