Abstract A traffic safety problem is an identifiable subgroup of drivers, pedestrians, vehicles, or roadways that is statistically higher in crash experience than normal expectations. Problem identification is a data driven process that involves the study of relationships between traffic crashes and the population, licensed drivers, registered vehicles, and vehicle miles traveled, as well as characteristics of specific subgroups that may contribute to crashes. In accordance with Federal requirements, one element of the plan is to discuss how traffic safety problems would be identified and addressed over the course of the three years. The process used to identify traffic safety problems began by evaluating Idahos experience in each of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations (NHTSA) eight highway safety priority areas. These program areas were determined by NHTSA to be most effective in eliminating motor vehicle crashes, injuries, and deaths. Consideration for other potential traffic safety problem areas came from analysis of the Idaho crash data and coordination with the Idaho Strategic Highway Safety Plan. The Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a statewide-coordinated plan that provides a comprehensive framework for eliminating highway fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. Comparison data was developed, where possible, on costs of crashes, the number of crashes, and the number of deaths and injuries. Crash data, from the Idaho State Collision Database, was analyzed to determine problem areas as well as helmet use for motorcycles and bicycles, child safety-restraint use, and seat-belt use. Population data from the Census Bureau, Violation and license suspension data from the Economics and Research Section, Idaho Transportation Department and arrest information from the Bureau of Criminal Identification, Idaho State Police (ISP) was also used in the problem identification.
