The Project Safety Management System is intended to improve the safety of the transportation system by assisting decision makers as they allocate transportation safety resources.
PSMS is a comprehensive data analysis and reporting system designed to improve safety on Oregon roadways. Use of PSMS will help ODOT meet goals set forth in the Transportation Safety Action Plan, specifically:
To reduce traffic fatalities in Oregon from 10 fatalities per 100,000 population (2009), to 9.25 per 100,000 by the year 2020.
PSMS provides pertinent crash, safety, and traffic mitigation information allowing data-based decisions to be made. Three major elements contribute to PSMS:
All Roads Transportation Safety Program
Safety Priority Index System
Systemic Improvement Plans
Biennial Status Reports
Highway Safety Improvement Program Annual Reports
