Abstract [en]

The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) of the Government of Puerto Rico established the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (PR-SHSP) 2014-2018. The goal of this five-year plan is to achieve a reduction in the number of fatalities and serious injuries on Puerto Rico public roadways with the slogan working together toward highway safety to save more lives.

This paper provides an overview of the Strategic Highway Safety Plan in Puerto Rico, its principal components and the lessons learned throughout its implementation process. The rationale associated with the identification and selection process of the primary/core Emphasis Areas, namely traffic records and information systems, emergency medical response, and occupant protection. The other six Emphasis Areas are alcohol impaired driving, aggressive driving, vulnerable road users, young drivers (15-20 years old), roadway departure, and intersections are described.

Short to medium-range guidelines on how to implement SHSP at the international level, including road user educational campaigns and related success stories from the safety stakeholders are described.
