ABOUT THE PUERTO RICO STRATEGIC HIGHWAY SAFETY PLAN (SHSP)

The Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) 2014-2018 was prepared in partnership with the Puerto Rico Traffic Safety Commission (PRTSC), the Puerto Rico Police, the Puerto Rico Health Department, and the Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority. During the development process pf the SHSP, assistance was received from federal government such as Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In addition to the contribution of other safety stakeholders representing the government, academia, non-profit organizations, and other private sector partners. Its approval, back in July 2014, represented a starting point for a collaborative process among safety stakeholders in Puerto Rico that share the same interest of reducing fatalities and serious injury crashes in our roadways.

As a participatory and collaborative plan, through SHSP, different initiatives have been identified that could reduce traffic crashes and their severity in the island. Likewise, it has promoted that these efforts are coordinated, creating a multiplier effect in the reach of organizations in the local population. Each initiative is evaluated with experiences from other jurisdictions, data and crash analysis or recommendations from federal agencies, among others. However, the basic element of the SHSP is the continuous assessment of crashes trends in the Puerto Rico road system. This is why one of the first steps to developing SHSP was to define its areas of emphasis (see figure below). Each one has clearly established the strategic goals, performance measures and objectives to 2018, the year in which the first cycle of this SHSP ends. Among the resources that continuously contribute to the enhancement of SHSP are the following:
