Starting in early 2012, Iowa’s traffic safety community began working to update Iowa’s highway safety vision and goals. This effort began prior to, but has since been mandated by new federal legislation, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The result of this effort is the 2013 Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). The SHSP was written using a data-driven, innovative and proactive planning process that addresses not only the Four E’s of roadway safety (engineering, education, enforcement, and emergency medical services), but also a fifth E – everyone. The last E is a reminder that safety is everyone’s responsibility. Iowa is adopting the national vision for highway safety – Toward Zero Deaths. The vision of the Toward Zero Deaths effort is to eliminate all traffic fatalities, and is consistent with the vision in our 2006 Comprehensive Highway Safety Plan – “One Death is One Too Many.” The national goal is to reduce traffic fatalities by half by the year 2030.
