2021-2025 Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) Update 

Nevada’s SHSP is a comprehensive statewide safety plan that identifies the greatest causes of fatalities and serious injuries on Nevada roadways and provides a coordinated framework for reducing these crashes. Goals and strategies were developed in consultation with federal, tribal, state, local, and private-sector safety stakeholders. 

Nevada’s goal of Zero Fatalities is more critical now than ever before. Every year, more than 300 people die, and more than 1,000 people are seriously injured on Nevada roadways. The 2021-2025 Nevada SHSP is the roadmap needed to reduce these preventable traffic-related tragedies. 

The 2021-2025 SHSP continues the legacy of previous strategic highway safety plans and provides a comprehensive framework for the next chapter of transportation safety in Nevada. With the goal of Zero Fatalities, the SHSP integrates Equity, Engineering, Education, Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services/Emergency Response/Incident Management, and Everyone into data-driven statewide highway safety goals and priorities for the following focus areas: Safer Roads, Vulnerable Road Users, Safer Drivers and Passengers, and Impaired Driving Prevention. 

The 2021-2025 SHSP Update will kick-off with an “All Task Forces” call next month. The final document is anticipated to be approved by the Federal Highway Administration in February 2021.
