Abstract Section 1401 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, and 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 (FHWA) program with separate funding. The purpose of the HSIP, as stated in Section 148(b)(2), is to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roads. As a requirement to the HSIP program, each state is to submit an annual report which describes no less than 5-percent of roadway locations exhibiting the most severe safety needs. The intent of the HSIP is to raise public awareness of the highway safety needs and challenges in each State. The '5% Report' list was generated by using the Safety Analysis Management System (SAMS) application to query all crash reports where there was a reported fatality or life-threatening injury (Injury A) for the target years of 2006 to 2010. The results from this query were exported into a spreadsheet for further review. The data in this spreadsheet included 5,984 separate crash records throughout the state, listed by each of the 82 counties in Mississippi. From the original list exported from the SAMS query, it was determined that some records could be deleted. Some records marked for deletion included test cases where dummy crash records were input into the system that were never deleted from the state database.
