This document is an update to Iowa’s 2017 SHSP, and is the fourth such effort in Iowa since it became a requirement. Iowa’s SHSP was developed in consultation with the SHSP Implementation Team, which is composed of individuals representing the E’s of safety (education, emergency medical services, enforcement, and engineering). These representatives provide updates on programs, policies, and educational campaigns for their respective organizations, as well as data on the latest research for their area of expertise. For this update, the prioritization of Iowa’s 18 safety emphasis areas was supported by an analysis of crash data and an extensive statewide input process involving Iowa’s traffic safety stakeholders. The result of these efforts was the prioritization of eight of the safety emphasis areas that are now considered priority safety emphasis areas. For each of the priority safety emphasis areas, the Implementation Team identified strategies that provide the greatest opportunity to reduce fatalities and serious injuries.
