Abstract Section 1401 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (Public Law 109-59), or SAFETEA-LU, amended Section 148 of Title 23, United Sates Code, to create a new Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as a 'core' FHWA program with specific funding. As a condition for obligating HSIP funds, Section 148(c)(1)(D) requires States to prepare an annual report that describes not less than 5 percent of their public road locations exhibiting the most severe safety needs. The legislation requires that these reports also include an assessment of potential remedies at the locations identified, the estimated costs of the remedies, and impediments to their implementation other than costs. Collision data that includes all severity levels (Fatal, Injury, Property damage) is available in an electronic database for CY 1994 through CY 2010. CY 2010 crash data is preliminary and subject to revision until December 31, 2011. Accident data from CY 1980 to CY 1993 is available in an older, limited electronic format. Information on fatal accidents prior to CY 1980 may be available and can be researched on an individual basis.
