Abstract The Federal Section 402 Program has historically been jointly administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). While this will continue under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), the structure of this document, the Alabama Highway Safety Plan (HSP), will reflect the new MAP-21 reforms. The 402 Program is administered in Alabama by the Governor through the Alabama Office of Highway Safety (AOHS), which is housed within the Law Enforcement and Traffic Safety Division of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA). The Alabama Highway Safety Plan (HSP) is produced each year to provide continuous guidance and improvement in ongoing efforts to assure that 402 Program funds are allocated optimally in order to bring about the maximum reduction of crash-caused fatalities and severe injuries on Alabama roadways. According to the MAP-21 guidelines, 402 Program highway safety funds must be used to support programs that (source: GHSA Summary of Behavioral Highway Safety Provisions MAP-21, July 5, 2012): Reduce death and injuries from speeding; Encourage the use of occupant protection; Reduce deaths from alcohol impairment; Prevent motorcycle crashes; Reduce injuries and deaths from school bus crashes; Reduce crashes from unsafe driving behavior, including aggressive, fatigued and distracted driving; Improve driver performance, including (but not limited to): Driver education, Testing and examinations, and Driver licensing; Improve pedestrian performance and bicycle safety; Improve emergency medical services; and Improve traffic records, including (but not limited to): o Crash investigations, o Vehicle registration, operation and inspection. Alabama has met the requirements for Section 402 funding since the onset of the program in the late 1960s.
