2015 Highway Safety
Performance Plan

HSP Planning Process
Long range planning is a year round process
spanning several years, usually from 2 years
prior to and extending 2 years forward from
the current fiscal year.
 Short term planning for next year begins
with approval of the current years plan,
which usually occurs in the latter part of
August and kicks off with this event.
 The 2016 Highway Safety Plan must be
submitted to NHTSA for approval by July 1,
2015.

Planning Process - continued
The plan must contain a number of
elements, including:
 Description of data sources and processes used to
identify the State’s highway safety problems;
 Identify the participants in the process;
 Description of selected performance measures and
performance targets;
 Identify the projects selected as well as the
“evidence-based” countermeasure strategies the
selected projects will utilize;
 Provide a program-area-level report on the State’s
success in meeting State performance targets from
the previous year’s HSP;
There are eleven (11) Core performance measures and
one (1) core Behavioral measure which must be
included in the HSP:

Year
Fatalities in alcohol-impaired traffic crashes have decreased more than 15% since 2008.
However, the model indicates that this decline will stop and the trend will remain flat
through 2017. Factors considered in setting goals were an expected increase in miles driven,
increases in licensed drivers, strengthening laws, and population shifts from rural to urban. It
will take one to three years to determine if efforts in strengthening enforcement and laws
will have the expected results.

So after all this, what were the identified
problems and solutions?
Impaired driving
This still remains the #1 focus of attention, with
29% of fatality crashes in Oklahoma involving
impaired drivers. A NHTSA study conducted in
2010, on a best to worst scale in the number of
impaired driving fatalities, ranked Oklahoma 46th
out of 51 - and dead last in improving its fatality
rate. Here is an excerpt from a recently published
article in a Wall Street report which reports
Oklahoma ranks 6th worst in the nation in the
number of drunk driving deaths per 100,000 VMT.
Oklahoma’s drunk driving problem has seen little improvement
over the decade ending in 2012. While Oklahoma manages to
curb underage drinking relatively well, the number of drunk
driving fatalities among drinking-age adults decreased by just
5.3% over the 10 years ending in 2012, a far lower decline than
in most other states. Current anti-drunk driving laws do not seem
to be effective at deterring drunk drivers in the state, as nearly
79% of all drunk driving fatalities involved a driver with a blood
alcohol content of at least 0.15% — well above the legal limit of
0.08%.This is despite the fact that the state has an “aggravated
DUI” law that imposes harsher penalties on drunk drivers with a
blood alcohol level of 0.15% or more.
So which five States were worse than Oklahoma??

Crashes involving Fatality or Serious Injury
On the rise again in 2014
The primary goal of any traffic safety effort is to reduce
the number of persons killed or injured in MV crashes as well as reducing the number of crashes overall. This
is accomplished through a number of strategies,
including: enforcement, training, education, statistical
analysis, etc..
Using both FARS and State data, cities and counties are
ranked based on their vehicle crash rates. This data,
which is published each year in the OHSO Crash Facts
Book, along with other statistical or relevant data, are
used by the OHSO in evaluating which project
proposals to approve in order to make the best use of
available funding sources to address local problems.
Motorcycles
Motorcycle fatalities showed a significant spike in
numbers in 2009. From 2008 to 2012, the 46-55 age
group was the leading group involved in motorcyclist
fatalities, representing about 25% of MC fatalities.
In 2011, the State Motorcycle Advisory Committee was
formed to provide for a centralized discussion of this
growing problem and how to best address it.
There are a number of projects recommended by this
committee in the FY15 HSP to address identified needs
in training and education.
Traffic Records
Accomplishments:
oElectronic submission of crash reports
oE-citations
oCollision analysis systems (such as SAFE-T)
oDDACTS (Data Driven Approaches to Crime &
Traffic Safety)
Improvements needed:
oContinued efforts to increase electronic processing
and integration of traffic records at the state and
local level;
oCreation of a statewide DUI tracking database;
oBetter integration of record keeping system
between local and state agencies.
