A Closer Look
The CHSP is comprehensive in the sense that it encompasses the programs of multiple agencies and jurisdictions throughout the state. Each entity has a role in the development of the plan but retains authority over the elements for the plan that are within their jurisdiction. Participating agencies form a collaborative partnership in reducing highway crashes, injuries and deaths.
Montana has integrated two key elements in all safety emphasis areas:
- Improve the accuracy, completeness, integration, timeliness, uniformity, collection, and accessibility of data used in traffic safety analysis; and
- Collaborate across agencies, organizations and with the public to improve traffic safety, driver behavior, and promote the Vision Zero.
