2015 MAG Strategic Transportation Safety Plan

The 2015 MAG Strategic Transportation Safety Plan (STSP) was approved by the Regional Council in 2015. The Plan is an update to the 2005 STSP developed by MAG’s Transportation Safety Committee (TSC). The STSP identifies regional priorities, strategies, resource needs and performance indicators. It also establishes an approach for identifying and enacting solutions for road safety issues that affect all agencies in the MAG region. The STSP’s development was coordinated with the Arizona Department of Transportation’s (ADOT) 2014 Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP).

Next Steps

Implementation of the STSP spans a 10-year time frame from July 2015 - June 2025. Enacting the proposed strategies may require changes in investment priorities and/or organizational changes. These strategies provide the best opportunity of achieving three to seven percent reduction in fatalities and serious injuries.

To monitor the effectiveness of regional road safety programs and initiatives, MAG produces an annual Transportation Safety Performance Report. It includes: crash statistics and trends, performance in comparison to the safety target, and a summary of road safety projects and activities in each action area, including their possible impact on road safety performance. MAG’s Transportation Safety Committee will provide oversight to programs and projects and will guide these activities throughout their implementation. Regular review of projects and programs that address these strategies will be done under the direction of MAG’s Transportation Safety Committee. This STSP will be updated on a five-year cycle.
