10. NHTSA Priorities PRIORITIES Alcohol Safety Belts Speeding OUTCOMES DUI Sustained Enforcement Prelim numbers show reduction in DUI fatalities in 2008 Click It Or Ticket All time high in 2008 – 81.7% 2009 – available mid-August Passage of primary safety belt bill in 2009 LEAD “Let’s Eliminate Aggressive Driving” Use of non-traditional enforcement vehicles Enhanced Penalty Zones (Duval, Brevard, Palm Beach)

11. The impaired driving problem 2006* 2007* 2008 Alcohol related fatalities: 1,099 1,244 1,169 Alcohol related injuries: 16,319 16,208 15,736 Alcohol related crashes: 22,858 22,823 22,259 Alcohol related fatal crashes: 1,007 1,119 1,073 *Federal numbers are much lower (2006 – 926; 2007 – 890; 2008 - 875) due to substantial difference in definition

12. The speeding problem 303 speeding-related fatal crashes 328 total fatalities

13. The safety belt problem Belt use was at an all time high in 2008 – 81.7% Polk is the lowest use county surveyed 2006 – 77.3% 2007 – 72.9% 2008 – 73% 2009 - Expected to decrease The good news: the law became primary on June 30 What’s next?

14. Safety Belt Use in 12 Survey Counties

15. Why isn’t it working in Polk? 2009 – changed Click it or Ticket format to better reach focus groups (young males, minorities, pick up truck drivers and passengers) Sport venues popular among focus groups Took forever to give away free tickets to buckled occupants – not so in other areas. Is it the message? Is it perception that no one is being ticketed? We need your help.

16. Emerging Priorities Teens Most experts say one time events don’t work – is it so? Even when teen drivers buckle up – teen passengers do not – 9 Jacksonville teens – 1 buckled – 5 dead Motorcyclists Numbers increasing nationwide Slight drop last 2 years in Florida Motorcycle assessment and coalition NHTSA Motorcycle 101 and Motorcycle Forum

17. How are projects chosen for grant award? Data, Data, Data Well described problem supported by data Well thought out plan/program with specific countermeasures and measurable goal Good performance measures for evaluation

18. Where do I get the data? Law enforcement agencies have data DHSMV “Crash Facts” published yearly http://www.flhsmv.gov/hsmvdocs/CS2008.pdf All governmental agencies can get data from the DOT Districts and the Safety Office DOT Safety Office matrices http://www.dot.state.fl.us/safety/ Click on “Highway Safety Grant Program” and “Sample Concept Paper”

19. FLORIDA’S STRATEGIC HIGHWAY SAFETY PLAN (SHSP)

20. Florida Got to Work Two statewide forums (2006) Public website survey 12 Signatory Partners 13 Member Executive Committee 20 Member Steering Committee Goal: develop a comprehensive plan to strategically address roadway safety issues to reduce deaths and serious injuries

21. Four Emphasis Areas: Aggressive Driving Intersection Crashes Vulnerable Road Users (bicyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists) Lane Departures Three Continuing Priority Areas Occupant Protection Impaired Driving Data The SHSP

22. Aggressive Driving Enforcement: 42+ details (e.g., 4 on 4 along I-4) Joint FHP and MCCO CMV details Grant funded unconventional vehicles and positions Law Enforcement Challenge

23. Aggressive Driving Engineering: Intersection improvements Provide free white confirmation lights

24. Aggressive Driving Education: Training for law enforcement to properly identify aggressive driving Lake County Cops and Kids Event Dynamic Speed Feedback Signs

25. Intersection Crashes

26. Intersection Crashes Engineering: Install high friction surface treatment at targeted approach queues and ramps Construct offset left turn lanes and extend/add turn lanes Qwick Kurb installation to address problematic median openings

27. Intersection Crashes

28. Vulnerable Road Users

29. Vulnerable Road Users

30. Vulnerable Road Users

31. Lane Departure Crashes Enforcement: Enforcement details for “Move Over Law” Enhanced Penalty Zones – speeding fine plus $50 (pilot on I-95 in 3 counties)

32. Lane Departure Crashes

33. Lane Departure Crashes

34. Occupant Protection

35. Occupant Protection

37. Impaired Driving

38. The 4Es plus 1 - Everyone Else The 4Es of Enforcement, Engineering, Education, and Emergency Response need the 5th E – Everyone Else

39. It’s all about implementation Every day, every week, every month you are doing something that implements the SHSP More is getting done than is getting tracked If it’s not tracked - it can’t be reported

40. Who Reports Implementation Efforts? Everyone Sheriffs’ Departments (Ocala, Broward, Monroe, Lake, Orange) Police Departments (Fruitland Park, Altamonte Springs, Bonifay, Aventura) Florida Highway Patrol (all troops) CTSTs (Lake, Brevard, Marion, Orange, Seminole) MPOs (Volusia, First Coast, Charlotte-Punta Gorda) Do you?

41. How can you join?

42. Tracking Implementation Efforts

44. How can you help? Spread the word Get involved Get people motivated Enter projects Get others to track programs/projects Let us know how we can help you
