Abstract The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) strives to keep Hawaii's roads safe for all roadway users. We are pleased to report that the number of fatalities decreased, to 100 motor vehicle fatalities in 2011. With this achievement, we were able to meet the goal of Hawaii's Strategic Highway Safety Plan, which was to reduce the number of traffic-related deaths from an annual average of 135 to 100 or fewer within five years (2007-2012). Although 100 lives lost on our roadways is unacceptable, it shows that the hard work of our partners and our programs is having an impact. But we still have a long way to go to reach the national goal of Zero Deaths. Many of the senseless fatalities could have been prevented had drivers obeyed traffic laws, used seat belts/child safety seats, elected to wear helmets, driven within the speed limit and not driven while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Sadly, it is often the innocent victims and their families who suffer the consequences of these preventable crashes. Knowing that every victim is someone's mother, father, sister, brother or friend, traffic safety continues to be the top priority for the HDOT and we remain committed to implementing road safety projects that support national highway safety priorities. Throughout the upcoming federal fiscal year, Hawaii will continue to participate in national mobilization efforts in both occupant protection and alcohol countermeasures. Furthermore, Hawaii's four county police departments will continue to enforce statutes addressing impaired driving, occupant protection, pedestrian safety, distracted driving and driving in excess of posted speed limits.
