NYS Safety Plans

NYS Highway Safety Strategic Plan (2013) – the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) develops this plan using a data-driven approach to identify problems and set priorities for the state’s highway safety program, including bicycle and pedestrian safety.  GTSC takes into account issues and strategies identified by the GTSC member agencies, other state and local agencies, enforcement agencies and not-for-profit organizations that have submitted applications for funding through the Section 402 State and Community Highway Safety grant program.

NYS Strategic Highway Safety Plan (2010) – the purpose of this plan, developed by NYSDOT and GTSC is to promote best practices and strategies that, if implemented, could have a substantial impact on reducing fatal and injury crashes, including bicycle and pedestrian crashes.  Applications for Highway Safety Improvement Program funding must be consistent with the strategies identified in this plan.

Crash Reports

County Data Reports – data for bicycle, pedestrian and motor vehicles crashes in New York counties is published annually in the County Data Reports.

Interactive Map of NYS Pedestrian Fatalities 2010-2012 – developed by Tri State Transportation Campaign, the map shows the location of pedestrian fatalities with clickable layers that display county, congressional district, state senate district and state assembly district boundaries.

State Transportation Improvement Program (2013-2017) – otherwise known as “the STIP” – this is the federally required, four-year, statewide multimodal program or list of transportation projects proposed for federal transportation funding.  Program funding sources are described beginning on page 39, and Table 2 (page 49) depicts the level of federal funding that NYS estimates will be available for transportation during Federal Fiscal Years 2014 through 2017.

Tracking State Transportation Dollars – developed by Tri State Transportation Campaign, this online tool provides an analysis of the STIP (see above) to show you how NYS spends its transportation funding.
