Saving Lives through Local Road Safety Planning

Jun. 30, 2016 , 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm


Join us on this interactive webinar to learn about Local Road Safety Plans (LRSPs), and how your county can benefit from the development and implementation of one. Federal, state, and local transportation experts will discuss the recognized positive impacts LRSPs have on local road safety through collaboration with safety stakeholders, building awareness and correlation with the State Strategic Highway Safety Plans (SHSP). LRSPs are designed to build on the foundation established by the SHSP. They can also provide the basis for systemic implementation of safety measures across the entire jurisdiction. This presentation will provide an overview of LRSP with a focus on (1) the “why” of developing Local Road Safety Plans; (2) the benefits realized and (3) different approaches to the development and implementation of the plans. This webinar is being presented with support from the sponsors of the NACo Community and Economic Development program.
