In working towards Vision Zero, Florida’s statewide traffic safety coalitions and programs focus on their respective emphasis areas and best practices, with strategies that guide efforts to reduce serious injuries and fatalities on our roadways. Teamwork and partnerships are fundamental in addressing traffic safety locally, regionally, and statewide.
These coalitions support the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) emphasis areas and bring partners together to analyze data, create strategic action plans, implement programs, and monitor performance. Traffic safety is most effective when employing the 4Es: Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Emergency Response, as well as the 4Is addressing Information Intelligence, Innovation, Insight into Communities, and Investment and Policies. Florida traffic safety coalition members are comprised of dedicated people from the 4Es group as well as community officials, agencies, advocacy groups, business partners, and membership organizations.
