Abstract According to the Highway Safety Act of 1966, 23 USC Chapter 4, Section 402, each State shall have a highway safety program approved by the Secretary, designed to reduce traffic crashes, deaths, injuries, and property damage. In order to secure funding each State must submit to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) a Performance Plan as well as a Highway Safety Plan. Contained in the Performance Plan must be a set of clear and measurable highway safety goals, descriptions of the process used in determination of the highway safety problems, and the activities on how projects will address the highway safety problems. Starting in Federal Fiscal Year 2011, NHTSA required a set of fourteen Performance Measures and a plan for a public behavioral survey to be included in the Highway Safety Plan. Pennsylvania's proposed Highway Safety Goal is to reduce fatalities by one-half by the year 2030 using the 2006-2010 five-year average 1,413 as the baseline. By 2012, Pennsylvania hopes to reduce fatalities to a five-year average of 1,342. With this goal in mind, Pennsylvania would be at 706 fatalities in 2030. The formula for developing these goals has been proposed and will be finalized in development of Pennsylvania's new Strategic Highway Safety Plan. Until this is finalized, these goals are only proposed. Safety has always been one of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) strategic focus areas. The programs and activities of the Highway Safety Performance Plan reflect a substantial broad-based effort designed to meet the ambitious goals.
