A Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a major component and requirement of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) under the FAST act. All 50 states are required to develop and implement an SHSP that demonstrates a consultative process with stakeholders and a data-driven process to prioritize and select emphasis areas. Many states, including Florida, listed “motorcycle safety” as one of the emphasis areas in their SHSP. Florida took a further step to develop a Motorcycle Safety Strategic Plan (MSSP) that aims to provide focused and coordinated guidance for its comprehensive motorcycle safety program. The Florida Motorcycle Safety Coalition is responsible for the implementation of the MSSP.
In this webinar, you will learn about the following topics:
- Motorcycle Safety in Florida
- Florida’s Motorcycle Safety Coalition
- Developing a Motorcycle Safety Strategic Plan (MSSP)
