Abstract The goal of the Connecticut Highway Safety Program is to prevent roadway fatalities and injuries as a result of crashes related to driver behavior. Under the Highway Safety Act of 1966 (U.S. 23 USC- Chapter 4) the Governor is required to implement a highway safety program through a designated State agency suitably equipped and organized to carry out the program. An appointed Governorfs Highway Safety Representative oversees the program and supporting Section 402 highway safety grant funds made available to the States to carry out their annual Highway Safety Plans. The Connecticut Highway Safety program is an extension of this Federal requirement. The Highway Safety Office (HSO) is located in the Connecticut Department of Transportation in the Bureau of Policy and Planning. The primary objectives of the HSO are to plan, coordinate, and implement effective highway safety programs and to provide technical leadership, support and policy direction to highway safety partners. This planning document provides historic, trend, and the most current crash data available in addition to other State-provided data detailing highway safety in Connecticut. The identified problem areas dictate the Statefs highway safety goals, objectives, and planned countermeasures. The basis for this examination is Connecticutfs motor vehicle crash experience for the calendar year 2010 in comparison to the previous year(s). This document serves as Connecticutfs application to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for federal funds under Section 402 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, and Efficient Transportation Equity act . a Legacy for Users (SAFETEA LU) for the 2013 Federal Fiscal Year.
