SALEM – The Oregon Department of Transportation is inviting anyone interested in transportation safety to comment on the draft Transportation Safety Action Plan, or TSAP, through August 1. An update of the October 2011 plan, the draft TSAP outlines policies and strategies that support the plan’s vision of zero fatalities and is available on the project website. Comments can be emailed to: safety@odot.state.or.us or mailed to ODOT Planning, Attn: TSAP, 555 13th St. NE, Salem OR 97301.

The Oregon Transportation Safety Committee will discuss the plan and the public input received at its August meeting, with expected adoption of the final plan by the Oregon Transportation Commission in October.

The plan’s draft vision is: Oregon envisions no deaths or life-changing injuries on Oregon’s transportation system by 2035. Areas of emphasis in the plan include infrastructure; risky behaviors; vulnerable users; and improved transportation safety-related systems. The plan serves as the state’s federally-required strategic highway safety plan as well as an element of the state’s overarching planning document, the multimodal Oregon Transportation Plan.
