  • Description

Over 450 people die in crashes on the roads of the nine-county Delaware Valley in an average year. Over 50,000 people are injured in approximately 90,000 crashes. The Safety Action Plan includes a methodology to define key safety emphasis areas, a range of strategies for each of the seven emphasis areas, and a focused implementation table to reduce the number of fatalities. The Safety Action Plan was developed with guidance from the multi-disciplinary Regional Safety Task Force. The implementation table is an agreed-upon starting point for how partners will work together to improve traffic safety in the region. Each meeting of the Regional Safety Task Force will include reporting back on progress on the implementation table. The Safety Action Plan will be updated regularly. Analysis of crash data for the region is provided in Traffic Crash Analysis of the Delaware Valley (Publication Number 08054).
