    16. Strategic Highway Safety Plan for Indian Lands

    17. Emphasis Areas 1) decision making processes 2) data collection 3) run off the road crashes 4) occupant protection/child restraint 5) alcohol/drug impaired driving 6) other driver behavior and awareness 7) drivers under the age of 35 8) pedestrian safety.
