Abstract The State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program, enacted by the Highway Safety Act of 1966 as Section 402 of Title 23, United States Code, provides grant funds to the states, the Indian nations and the territories each year according to a statutory formula based on population and road mileage. The grant funds support state planning to identify and quantify highway safety problems, provide start-up or seed money for new programs, and give new direction to existing safety programs. Monies are used to fund innovative programs at the State and local level. Nine highway safety program areas are designated as National Priority Program Areas. They are Occupant Protection, Impaired Driving, Police Traffic Services, Motorcycle Safety, Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety, Speed Control, Roadway Safety, Emergency Medical Services, and Traffic Records. Other areas are eligible for funding when specific problems are identified. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is the Federal oversight agency for Section 402 programs. The Highway Safety Office (HSO) of the Arkansas State Police (ASP) administers the Section 402 funds and oversees the highway safety program efforts supported by these funds for the State of Arkansas. The Highway Safety Plan developed by the HSO identifies the traffic related safety problems in Arkansas and recommends programs that are most effective in reducing traffic fatalities, injuries and crashes. The Performance Plan portion of this report presents the process for identifying problems and developing programs to address those problem areas to which Section 402, as well as State highway safety funds, will be applied.
