Local voice and representation are critical to the effectiveness of community traffic safety programs.Transportation safety practitioners have the obligation and accountability to incorporate the voices of their communities in transportation decision-making. ODOT strives to actively involve the public in various stages of transportation decision-making and to build their organizational capacity to do so. Public involvement from the beginning and throughout a program or project’s lifecycle has the potential to help projects come to life faster and to better meet the needs of the community. This set of promising practices provides a shared definition of meaningful public involvement and promising practices to help address barriers to inclusion in transportation decision-making.
Oregon’s annual Highway Safety Plan, also serves as the state’s FFY application for federal funds in meeting the requirements of Title 23 CFR Part 1300.
The plan represents a one-year look into the transportation safety program and the State and Federal (NHTSA and FHWA) funds managed by the ODOT-Transportation Safety Office. In addition, every year an Annual Evaluation Report is completed that explains how funds were actually spent, challenges faced, and how ODOT-TSO fared on meeting its annual performance measure targets (December).
The Transportation Safety Office always looks forward to a successful program where many transportation crashes are avoided and the fatality and injury toll is dramatically reduced. Each and every day, Oregon’s goal is zero fatalities.
