The task of saving lives on the nation's roadways is monumental. Success is only possible when organizations and agencies combine their skills and work together toward a common mission. The SHSP is making a difference! Through its data-driven and collaborative process, the SHSP is helping States identify and prioritize their most significant road safety needs, and develop a program of strategies with the greatest potential to save lives and reduce injuries.
The SHSP is a dynamic and "living" document. While specific legislative requirements may evolve or change over time, following the recommended strategies in the Champion's Guidebook to Saving Lives sets the foundation for State, regional, and local agencies and coalitions to have a well-defined SHSP process, from development and implementation to evaluation.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: indeed it is the only thing that ever has."
