Abstract This American Samoa Highway Safety Plan (HSP) for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2013 serves as the Territorys application to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for Federal funds available under Section 402 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, and Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). The Government of American Samoa, Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Highway Safetys (OHS) goals, objectives, and performance measures related to the program areas are described in this plan. To identify the issues to be addressed in the FFY 2013 highway safety program, analysis was conducted using a five-year period of data, and whenever possible, also provided 2012 data points. When assessing safety needs and programming potential, it is important to understand how American Samoa differs from the nation and other territories. The Territory annual motor vehicle population, annual crashes, and number of fatalities are significantly lower compared to other territories and states. As such, one fatality is significant and can impact the analysis results. Increase or decrease in percentages, particularly from one year to the next must be carefully analyzed for true impact.
