Abstract This Highway Safety Performance Plan (HSPP) contains the goals, strategies, performance measures and objectives that the District of Columbia has set for fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012 September 31, 2013). The HSPP is required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulations, in order to provide the district with Highway Safety Funds. The District Highway Safety program operates under the provisions of the Federal Highway Safety Act of 1966, 23 Chapter 4, Section 402. Section 402 funds can be used for a variety of safety initiatives including data analyses, developing safety education programs, and conducting community-wide pedestrian safety campaigns. Since the 402 Program is jointly administered by NHTSA and FHWA, Highway Safety Funds can also be used for some limited safety-related engineering projects. In the District, these funds are used to reduce crashes, fatalities, injuries and property damage by addressing road user behavioral issues, police traffic services, emergency medical services, motorcycle safety, and traffic records improvements.
