  • Abstract:
    The United States lags behind many other industrialized nations in its ability to ensure safety on public roadways as illustrated in Figure 1.1 (World Health Organization 2009). While progress has been made in reducing traffic deaths, the continued epidemic of preventable deaths and injuries related to factors such as impaired driving and a lack of seat belt use shows that more work is needed. A critical asset in monitoring and communicating traffic safety priorities is a reliable and comprehensive means to set and measure goals in this effort (Government Accounting Office 2010). In a national initiative to improve transparency and quantify metrics for behavior-based investments designed to reduce motor vehicle crashes, the Governor’s Highway Safety Association (GHSA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NTHSA) devised a set of performance measures aimed to elucidate traffic safety priorities and progress related to behavioral safety plans and programs (NHTSA 2008).
