Abstract Our transportation system is essential to societys continuing prosperity and an inescapable component to everyday life in Wisconsin; as a society we should not accept casualties as a foregone consequence of that system. Wisconsin citizens and state policymakers work toward achieving zero fatalities and incapacitating injuries on our roadways. Our belief is that any death is one too many, and we work toward saving as many lives as possible using the resources available. The Bureau of Transportation Safety (BOTS) coordinates a statewide behavioral highway safety program, using federal funds given back to the state through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), state funds, and other resources. Funds are primarily used to change system users behavior by: enforcing traffic laws; increasing driversperception of the risk of being ticketed for non-compliance; increasing public awareness of the dangers of high risk behavior; and informing system users of the best way to avoid or reduce the injury severity of a crash. Through analysis and targeting, BOTS works to provide leadership, innovation, and program support in partnership with state, county, and community traffic safety leaders, professionals, and organizations.
