STRATEGIC HIGHWAY SAFETY PLAN
Nevada’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a statewide safety plan and framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on Nevada’s roadways. The SHSP establishes goals and strategies developed in collaboration with federal, state, local, and private-sector safety stakeholders. The SHSP is updated every five years. The SHSP Action Plan is a supplemental document to the SHSP, and identifies the specific action steps and output measures for strategies within the SHSP. The Action Plan is updated annually, or as action steps are completed.
