Safety Performance Measures
The performance measures for safety are:
- Number of Fatalities
- Number of Serious Injuries
- Fatality Rate
- Serious Injury Rate
- Number of Non-Motorized Serious Injuries and Fatalities
ODOT must establish targets, regardless of ownership, for the full extent of the public roadways in Oklahoma. ODOT and MPOs must adopt annual targets for each safety measure. Each year FHWA will evaluate whether we have met, or made significant progress toward meeting the set targets. FHWA will consider states to be in compliance if states have met or improved from the baseline for at least four of the five targets. The regulations requires state DOTs and MPOs to establish safety targets as five-year rolling averages on all public roads. The 2018 targets are based on the 2012-2016 average for each of the measures.
