3 Florida Department of Transportation FY2014/2015 Highway Safety Plan FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is an executive agency, which means it reports directly to the Governor. FDOT s primary statutory responsibility is to coordinate the planning and development of a safe, viable, and balanced state transportation system serving all regions of the state, and to assure the compatibility of all components, including multimodal facilities. A multimodal transportation system combines two or more modes of movement of people or goods. Florida s transportation system includes roadway, air, rail, sea, spaceports, bus transit, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The FDOT s mission includes the continual improvement of Florida's transportation systems. The FDOT s Highway Safety Office consists of the following sections: federal highway safety grants, engineering and crash data, bicycle pedestrian safety program, safe routes to schools program, crossing guard train-the-trainer, and employee health and safety. FLORIDA S 2012 STRATEGIC HIGHWAY SAFETY PLAN Florida is committed to driving down fatalities and serious injuries on our streets and highways. The Departments of Education, Health, Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Transportation and the Florida Highway Patrol have partnered with agencies of the Federal Government and dozens of traffic safety organizations, cities and counties, and private sector businesses to develop Florida's Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). "With more than 19 million residents and nearly 84 million annual visitors traveling on 121,000+ miles of roads, it is a challenge to ensure the safety of Florida's traveling public. The SHSP is an interagency plan to address the challenge by focusing on engineering, enforcement, education, and emergency response solutions," said Governor Rick Scott of the State s SHSP. On November , the SHSP's signatory partners met in Tallahassee to pledge their support for the implementation of the five year plan which is based on proven countermeasures in order to devise datadriven and research-based strategies for fatality and serious injury reduction. The SHSP s goal is to achieve at least a five percent annual reduction in the actual number of fatalities and serious injuries, using the five-year averages from 2006 to 2010 as a baseline. The Florida Department of Transportation, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and partners from all segments of Florida s traffic safety community, developed the 2012 SHSP. Florida s SHSP is a statewide, datadriven plan that addresses the 4 E s of safety engineering, education, enforcement, and emergency response. The updated 2012 SHSP is serving as a roadmap to help Florida drive down fatalities and serious injuries for the five years between 2013 and

4 The Florida SHSP Emphasis Areas are: Aggressive Driving Intersection Crashes Vulnerable Road Users/Bicycles and Pedestrians Vulnerable Road Users/Motorcycles Lane-Departure Crashes Impaired Driving At-Risk Drivers/Aging Road Users At-Risk Drivers/Teen Drivers Distracted Driving Traffic Records Florida SHSP Continuing Priority Areas are: Occupant Protection Commercial Vehicles Work Zone Safety FEDERAL TRAFFIC SAFETY PROGRAMS Florida s Highway Safety Plan (HSP) and Highway Safety Improvement Plan (HSIP) echo the goals of the SHSP. The HSP follows the NHTSA requirements and the HSIP follows the FHWA requirements for development, implementation and reporting. This HSP is being developed inclusive of the requirements outlined in the Uniform Procedure for State Highway Safety Grant Programs as amended by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21 st Century Act (MAP-21). States must submit an HSP each year to NHTSA for approval, describing their highway safety program and the activities they plan to undertake in order to drive down highway fatalities and serious injuries. MAP-21 amended Section 402 (b) to require states to coordinate their HSP, data collection, and information systems with the SHSP as defined in 23 U.S.C. 148(a). Florida has, for many years, housed both the HSP and the HSIP in the same office within the FDOT with the SHSP serving as the overarching guide to continuous improvement of safety on our highways. MAP-21, therefore, provides additional credibility to Florida s historical and on-going traffic safety program process. 3

5 The National Priority Safety Programs contained within MAP-21 include: Occupant Protection (405 (b)) State Traffic Safety Information Systems (405 (c)) Impaired Driving Countermeasures (405 (d)) Motorcyclist Safety (405 (f)) Distracted Driving (405 (e)) State Graduated Driver Licensing (405 (g)) Under MAP-21 states are encouraged to use data to identify performance measures beyond the consensus performance measures, although the FDOT Highway Safety Office and other traffic safety partners have historically applied a data-driven approach to the allocation of resources. As a result, Florida s SHSP includes the following emphasis areas and continuing priority areas. The combined efforts of the HSP and the HSIP are intended to impact these areas. Florida Highway Safety Plan (HSP) Process This Federal Fiscal Year Highway Safety Plan is Florida s action plan for distribution of NHTSA highway safety funds. The Plan is based on Florida s SHSP goals and objectives and MAP-21 requirements. As part of our process, the FDOT is continuously analyzing the linkages between specific safety investments and safety outcomes in order to track the association between the application of resources and results. The Florida Department of Transportation Safety Office (FDOT) funds subgrants that address traffic safety priority areas, approach or resources including in order to improve traffic safety and reduce crashes, fatalities and serious injuries. Subgrants may be awarded for assisting in addressing traffic safety deficiencies, expansion of an ongoing activity, or development of a new program. Grants are awarded to state and local safety-related agencies as "seed" money to assist in the development and implementation of programs that address traffic safety deficiencies or expand ongoing safety programs activities in safety priority program areas. Funding for these grants are apportioned to states annually from NHTSA according to a formula based on population and road mileage. Funding may be available for projects in other program areas if there is documented evidence of an identified problem. 4

6 Today s highway safety programs focus on certain highway safety areas that have proven to be more effective than others in reducing traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities, especially when combined. These programs, designated as National Priority Program Areas are also the foundation of the State of Florida 2015 Highway Safety Plan: Speed Control Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Motorcycle Safety Impaired Driving Community Traffic Safety Traffic Records Police Traffic Services Occupant Protection/Child Passenger Safety Paid Media Planning and Administration Government agencies, political subdivisions of the state, local city and county government agencies, law enforcement, state colleges and state universities, school districts, fire departments, public emergency service providers, and certain qualified non-profit organizations (e.g. Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Students Against Destructive Decisions) are eligible to receive traffic safety grant funding. It is expected that programs funded through these grants will become self-sufficient and continue when grant funding terminates. To promote self-sufficiency, agencies are expected to provide a local funding match when personnel costs are included in second and third year projects. The local match is normally 25% of eligible costs for second year projects and 50% for third year projects. Entities interested in applying for NHTSA funding through Florida s Office of Highway Safety submit concept papers. Grants are awarded on a federal fiscal year basis (October 1 September 30) and can be funded for a maximum of three consecutive years in a given priority area. Concept papers are received between January 1 and March 31 for the next award cycle beginning October 1. Concept papers are evaluated for their expected effectiveness in targeting traffic safety issues. Evaluation and selection is data-driven based on the Florida Highway Safety Matrix; awards require performance measure delivery and reporting. Projects ultimately selected should provide the most impact to the high crash, high fatality, high injury challenges that Florida faces. If concept papers are not received from those areas identified as high crash, high fatality and high injury, the Traffic Safety Office may directly solicit concepts from agencies within high risks areas. 5

7 Problem Identification The county and city matrices (Florida Highway Safety Matrix) are designed to provide FDOT traffic safety planners an objective, data-driven tool to identify traffic safety problems. Both counties and cities are divided into three population groups. The numbers in each matrix represent where counties or cities rank within their population group in a particular program area, with 1 representing the worst crash rate, as described below. For example, the 12 next to Marion indicates they are ranked 12th in alcoholrelated crashes among the 23 counties in Group 1. The rankings in both matrices are based on rates of fatalities plus injuries over one, three, and five-year periods, in this case FY2015 rankings reflect data. In the County Matrix rates are 50% per population and 50% per vehicle mile traveled, with the exception of the Bicycle and Pedestrian areas, which are 100% per population. For the City Matrix, all rates are per population. Inmate populations are excluded in the calculations. Specific measures for each column in the matrix are as follows: Total Fatalities and Injuries (F&I) overall fatalities plus injuries Alcohol Related alcohol-related fatalities plus injuries (this includes both Driving Under Influence and crashes where had been drinking was a contributing circumstance) Bicycle, Motorcycle, Pedestrian F&I bicyclist, motorcyclist, and pedestrian fatalities plus injuries Speed Related speed-related fatalities plus injuries Safety Equipment injuries plus fatalities among drivers and passengers who were both not using safety equipment and were subject to the seat belt law Aggressive Driving injuries plus fatalities in crashes where two or more of certain moving violations (includes careless driving, improper passing, and several others) were cited Teen Drivers injuries plus fatalities among drivers aged 15-19, excluding bicyclists and motorcyclists Older Drivers injuries plus fatalities among drivers aged 65+, excluding bicyclists and motorcyclist. Alcohol, speeding, and aggressive driving are treated as causal factors, so that all injuries and fatalities in crashes involving them are counted. On the other hand, only bicycle, motorcycle, and pedestrian victims, drivers or 65+, plus individuals not using seat belts are counted in their respective areas. The Florida DHSMV Traffic Crash Statistics Report was used as the data source in the county matrix for the Total F&I, Alcohol Related, and the Bicycle, Motorcycle, and Pedestrian F&I areas. DOT s CAR database was used in the Speed Related, Safety Equipment, Teen Drivers, Drivers 65+, and Aggressive Driving areas, as well as the source for all data used in compiling city crash data. Additional information on Florida s behavioral grant process can be found at 6

8 STAKEHOLDERS Florida s highway safety process is dynamic. The development and execution of the SHSP, for example, happens through the continuous work of the agencies and organizations described above. In addition, many of the traffic safety emphasis areas are supported through the concerted efforts of coalitions. Coalitions working under the umbrella of the SHSP or partnering in the process include: The Motorcycle Coalition Mobility for Life Coalition Impaired Driving Coalition Distracted Driving Coalition Teen Driving Coalition Bicycle/Pedestrian Coalition Community Traffic Safety Teams Traffic Records Coalition Minority Task Force Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) During the development of the SHSP there were emphasis area teams for each emphasis area, comprised of technical experts and highway safety advocates representing the 4 E s of highway safety. Each emphasis area team was led by a chair and sometimes also a co-chair. The final work product was reviewed by a SHSP leadership team who then recommended approval to the SHSP executive team. In addition to the SHSP Emphasis area teams, Florida s Community Traffic Safety Teams (CTSTs) provide a consistent input into the highway safety process. CTSTs are locally based groups of highway safety advocates who are committed to solving traffic safety problems through a comprehensive, multijurisdictional, multi-disciplinary approach. Members include local city, county, state, and occasionally federal agencies, as well as private industry representatives and local citizens. The community boundaries determined by the individuals comprising the team, and can be a city, an entire county, a portion of a county, multiple counties, or any other jurisdictional arrangement. 7

9 Additional partners throughout the process include traffic safety members and advocates, FDOT District Traffic Safety Engineers, law enforcement, emergency responders, judges, MADD, SADD, and many state and local agencies. Through the combination of these efforts there are literally thousands of partners that work toward the goal of zero fatalities on our highways. 8

10 Performance Plan Congress requires each state to set performance goals and report performance measures in the Highway Safety Performance Plan. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Governors Highway Safety Association developed a set of 14 minimum performance measures that must be included in each state s plan. These are broken down into three activity measures, one behavioral measure, and 10 core outcome measures. The fatality numbers for the outcome measures use data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). Performance goals are required for the behavioral measure and the 10 core outcome measures. The FDOT Highway Traffic Safety Program has included two additional core outcome measures and three activity measures that relate to Florida. The following goals were set to meet the requirements of 23 CFR : Traffic Fatalities C-1) To decrease traffic fatalities 5% annually from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 2,424 to 2,078 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience a between a five and six percent annual decline, as shown over the past four years. A five and one half percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 2,078 fatalities in The table below shows total deaths for each year and the linear trend in total fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 2,168 in 2013, 2,004 in 2014, and 1,841 in ,000 C-1 Total Fatalities 2,500 2,000 2,168 2,004 1,841 1,500 1,000 2,558 2,563 2,444 2,398 2,424 y = x R² =

11 Serious Traffic Injuries C-2) To decrease incapacitating traffic injuries by 5% annually from 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 18,358 to 15,739 by December 31, The trend below indicates slightly lesser decline in serious injuries and Florida realistically expects to experience a five percent annual decline, as shown over the past four years. A five percent decrease annual would equate to approximately 15,739 serious injuries in The table below shows serious injuries for each year and the linear trend in serious injuries for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 18,700 in 2013, 17,362 in 2014, and 16,025 in ,000 C-2 Serious Injuries 24,000 22,000 y = x ,000 18,000 16,000 23,758 22,743 21,501 20,001 18,358 18,700 17,362 16,025 14,

12 Fatalities/VMT C-3) To decrease fatalities per 100 vehicles miles traveled (VMT) from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 1.27 to 1.09 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in fatalities per100m VMT, Florida realistically expects to experience an approximate five percent annual decline, considering the average rate of fatalities per 100M VMT has been 0.05% per total fatalities. A five percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 1.09 fatalities per 100M VMT in The table below shows fatalities per 100 miles of VMT for each year and the linear trend in fatalities per 100 miles VMT for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 0.97 in 2013, 0.86 in 2014, and 0.76 in C-3 Number of Fatalites/ 100M VMT y = x

13 Unrestrained Passenger Vehicle Occupant Fatalities C-4) To decrease the number of driver and passenger deaths in safety belt equipped (SBE) vehicles from 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 575 to 493 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience a five percent decline, as shown by the plateau in FY2012. A five percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 493 fatalities in The table below shows unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities for each year and the linear trend in unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 373 in 2013, 251 in 2014, and 129 in ,100 1, C-4 Unrestrained Occupant Fatalities - All Positions , y = x

14 Alcohol- Impaired Driving Fatalities C-5) To decrease alcohol impaired driving fatalities vehicles from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 697 to 597 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in alcohol impaired driving fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience an approximate five percent annual decline, as the recent spike in FY2011 is expected to have a slower turn around. A five percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 597 fatalities in The table below shows unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities for each year and the linear trend in unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 569 in 2013, 511 in 2014, and 453 in C-5 Fatalities Involving Driver/Motorcycilst with BAC y = x

15 Speeding Related Fatalities C-6) To decrease speeding-related fatalities from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 361 to 309 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in speeding-related fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience an approximate 12 percent annual decline, as the fatalities dropped significantly in 2011 and future years are less likely to continue that rate. A five percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 309 fatalities in The table below shows speeding-related fatalities for each year and the linear trend in speeding-related fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 216 in 2013, 143 in 2014, and 70 in C-6 Speeding Related Fatalities y = x

16 Motorcyclist Fatalities C-7) To decrease motorcyclist fatalities from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 491 to 420 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in motorcyclist fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience an approximate five percent annual decline, as the economy is fluctuating, Florida is experiencing an increase in motorcycle registrations. We recognize that new riders are more likely to experience a fatality. A five percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 420 fatalities in The table below shows speeding-related fatalities for each year and the linear trend in motorcyclist fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 382 in 2013, 357 in 2014, and 333 in C-7 Motorcyclist Fatalities y = x

17 Non-Helmeted Motorcyclist Fatalities C-8) To decrease non-helmeted motorcyclist fatalities from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 252 to 216 by December 31, In an average of 29% of all motorcycle fatalities were attributed to head trauma. Calculating 29% of the predicted total motorcyclist fatalities provides a predicted 216 fatalities in Florida is targeting with the trend calculation, as we expect fluctuations in heat through the years to relatively increase or decrease the number of riders using their helmets when the weather is hot. The table below shows non-helmeted motorcyclist fatalities for each year and the linear trend in motorcyclist fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, total fatalities would decline to 217 in 2013, 213 in 2014, and 209 in C-8 Unhelmeted Motorcyclist Fatalities y = x

18 Drivers Age 20 or Younger Involved in Fatal Crashes C-9) To decrease drivers age 20 or younger involved in fatal crashes from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 299 to 256 by December 31, While the trend below indicates a more significant decline in fatalities of drivers age 20 or younger, Florida realistically expects to experience a between an eight and eleven percent annual decline, as shown over the past three years. A ten percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 256 fatalities in The table below shows fatalities of drivers age 20 or younger for each year and the linear trend in these fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, fatalities for drivers under age 20 would decline to 144 in 2013, 78 in 2014, and 11 in C-9 Drivers 20 and under y = x

19 Pedestrian Fatalities C-10) To reduce pedestrian fatalities from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 476 to 407 by December 31, The trend below predicts a two percent reduction annually from 2012 to Florida is in the second year of a major pedestrian safety campaign that includes education and enforcement. Based on these efforts and the strategies being implemented from the SHSP, Florida realistically expects a five percent annual reduction of in pedestrian fatalities. A five percent annual reduction would equate to approximately 407 fatalities by The table below shows pedestrian fatalities for each year and the linear trend in these pedestrian fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, fatalities for pedestrian would decline to 464 in 2013, 459 in 2014, and 453 in C-10 Pedestrian Fatalities y = -4.5x

20 Bicyclist Fatalities F-1) To reduce bicyclist fatalities from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 122 to 105 by December 31, While the trend below predicts an approximate three percent reduction annually from 2012 to 2015 in fatalities of bicyclist fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience a five percent annual decline. This calculation is based on the implementation of the SHSP strategies to produce this level of deduction. A five percent decrease annually would equate to approximately 105 fatalities in The table below shows fatalities pedestrians for each year and the linear trend in these bicyclist fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, fatalities for bicyclist would decline to 104 in 2013, 102 in 2014, and 99 in F-1 Bicyclist Fatalities 120 y = x

21 Fatalities Involving a Florida-Resident Elder Driver F-2) To reduce the number of Florida-resident drivers age 65 and older, (classified as Aging Road Users in the SHSP) involved in fatal crashes from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 434 to 371 by December 31, The trend below predicts an approximate five percent reduction annually from 2012 to 2015 in fatalities of aging road user fatalities, Florida realistically expects to experience a five percent annual decline. A five percent annual reduction would equate to approximately 371 fatalities by The table below shows aging road user fatalities for each year and the linear trend in these aging road user fatalities for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, fatalities for aging road users would decline to 372 in 2013, 368 in 2014, and 364 in F-2 Florida Resident Fatalities over age y = x

22 Seat Belt Use Rate B-1) To increase the statewide observed seat belt use of front seat outboard occupants in passenger vehicles from the 2012 FARS data baseline year total of 87.4% to 91.7% by September 30, While the trend below indicates a more increase in seat belt use, Florida realistically expects to experience a one and one half percent annual increase, as averaged annually over the past six years. A one and one half percent increase annually would equate to approximately 91.9% usage rate in The table below shows the seat belt usage rate for each year and the linear trend in the seat belt usage rate for Florida. If the linear trend reflected in the data were to continue, seat belt usage rate would increase to 95.23% in 2014 and 97.37% in y = x

Data for the Activity Measures is based on the quarterly reports filed by subgrantees during the fiscal year while the other measures are based on calendar year data. 2. Accurate data for grant-funded citations in past years is not available because, in most cases, law enforcement agencies reported all citations issued during the year, not just the totals for grant-funded activities. 3. Fatality numbers come from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) except for F-2, which comes from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) annual report of crash statistics. 4. Serious injuries are those injuries listed as Incapacitating Injuries by the DHSMV in its annual report of crash statistics. 5. Prior to 2010 goals were set based on DHSMV data not FARS data. Goals shown for C-5 prior to 2010 were based on alcohol-related fatalities as defined by DHSMV. Goals for C-7 prior to 2010 included only motorcycle driver fatalities; motorcycle passenger fatalities were not included. 6. Florida s DUI activity measure includes both checkpoint and saturation patrol activities for FY2013 and forward, ***Numbers displayed in red for FY2014, reflect activity as of March 2014 quarterly progress reports. 23

25 Data for the core outcome measures included in the tables is based on the calendar year. The fatality data used in the table is taken from the FARS, except for measure F-2) Number of Florida Resident Drivers Age 65 Involved in Fatal Crashes. As noted at the end of the table, the goals that the Traffic Safety Section had set for fatalities prior to 2010 were based on fatality numbers published by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in its annual report of crash statistics. In some cases, the fatality data published by FARS has differed significantly from the data published by DHSMV. Starting in 2010, the fatality goals (except for F-2) were based on FARS data. The data used for C-2) Number of Serious Injuries in Traffic Crashes is taken from the DHSMV annual crash statistics report because FARS does not publish injury data. 24

27 PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCYLE SAFETY PROGRAM The Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program targets the reduction of fatalities and injuries of pedestrians and bicyclists by promoting conditions for safe and effective travel by foot and bicycle in Florida. Florida s Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety program provides education for law enforcement on effective measures to reduce crashes that involve pedestrians and bicyclist as well as funding for enforcement activities; communication and awareness campaigns in schools and other focused educational programs, such as those for seniors and other identified high risk populations; and outreach efforts focused on reaching vulnerable road users, such as older pedestrians, young children, and new immigrant populations and pedestrian and bicycle safety education and skills training for school physical education/health curricula, to include programs to increase safety awareness and skills among pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists who share the road with pedestrians and bicyclists. Statewide focused initiatives, such as Florida s Pedestrian and Bicycling Safety Resource Center, promote safe pedestrian and bicycling activities for citizens and visitors, young and old, by providing educational materials, and information to advocate groups in the state; coordinating the statewide bicycle helmet distribution program by trained helmet fitters and providing free helmet fitter certification training. STRATEGIES Increase awareness and understanding of safety issues related to Vulnerable Road Users Increase compliance with traffic laws and regulations related to pedestrian and bicycle safety through education and enforcement Develop and use a systemic approach to identify locations and behaviors prone to pedestrian and bicycle crashes and implement multidisciplinary countermeasures Encourage adequate funding levels for effective pedestrian and bicycle safety programs and initiatives Promote, plan, and implement built environments (urban, suburban, and rural) which encourage safety bicycling and walking Support national, state, and local legislative initiatives and polices that promote bicycle and pedestrian safety EFFECTIVENESS OF PROGRAM The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has proven the effectiveness of the following programs that Florida participates in.
