The Delaware Strategic Highway Safety Plan: Toward Zero Deaths aims to eliminate fatalities on Delaware’s roadways through a multi-agency approach that utilizes education, enforcement, engineering and emergency services strategies.
The goal of The Delaware Strategic Highway Safety Plan: Toward Zero Deaths is to achieve a fatality rate of 1.0 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled by 2018.
The Delaware Strategic Highway Safety Plan is a statewide coordinated safety plan that provides a comprehensive framework to reduce fatalities on Delaware's roadways by identifying specific goals and objectives and integrating the four E's - engineering, education, enforcement and emergency medical services (EMS). The plan was developed in collaboration with representatives from DelDOT, Delaware Office of Highway Safety, Delaware State Police, Delaware Department of Justice, Delaware Office of Emergency Medical Services, Federal Highway Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The plan is updated on a three year basis to review the success of the plan and to review crash data to ensure resources are being used appropriately to reduce the number of fatalities in Delaware.
