Office of Highway Safety
MISSION STATEMENT: We support the Department’s mission of ”Your Safety. Your Mobility. Your Economic Opportunity” by conducting programs to eliminate traffic deaths, serious injuries, and economic losses through funding programs and activities that promote safe travel on Idaho’s transportation systems, and collecting and maintaining crash data and utilizing reliable crash statistics.
VISION STATEMENT: To be the best in the country in promoting safety on Idaho's roads in an efficient and effective manner.
OPERATING PHILOSOPHY: The Office of Highway Safety has a deep concern for the welfare of the traveling public, and believe our main purpose is to save lives through creative, highly visible, innovative, and effective highway safety programs for all modes of transportation. We are committed to our critical role within the State of Idaho, and the rest of the nation, to ensure safe travel on Idaho’s roadways. As stewards, we have a responsibility to make a positive impact on peoples’ lives.
The continuation and expansion of state and local partnerships is essential
to our success.
The primary mission is to identify existing and emerging traffic safety trends
through statistically-based problem identification efforts, to efficiently
provide decision makers accurate data for use in determining where the most
effective highway safety investment is made.
This includes the task to develop and implement highway safety programs
that save lives and prevent injuries, and to provide appropriate safety funds
that empower communities to address critical local traffic safety issues.
As highway safety professionals, we are committed to teamwork, integrity and maintaining a positive working environment. In our highway safety partnerships, we respond, cooperate, and provide accurate and timely service. We are a leader in a coordinated statewide effort to eliminate death and serious injury on all of Idaho’s roadways.
