Safety Subcommittee

The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) approved the formation of a regional safety subcommittee on January 22, 2008 to coordinate the implementation of the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) in the Baltimore region. The SHSP is a requirement under SAFETEA-LU (Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users) aimed at reducing the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities through a process that relies on accurate and timely data, consultation with safety stakeholders, and performance-based goals that address infrastructure and behavioral safety problems on all public roads. 

The State of Maryland held a leadership summit on November 30, 2007 to seek help in implementing the SHSP at the regional level through regional programs and activities. From this summit, the Baltimore region developed a regional safety plan to be implemented under the guidance and leadership of the Metropolitan Planning Organization. A copy of the draft regional plan is online.

Purpose/Mission

 The purpose of the regional safety committee is to meet on a regular basis to monitor progress on the SHSP implementation in the Baltimore region and to develop plans and programs using the MPO leadership to raise safety awareness in the region. Meetings are held quarterly.   

 The committee is made up of safety stakeholders from each of the jurisdictions and state agencies representing the 4 E’s – Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Emergency Medical Services.

 Meetings are held quarterly.   Check the calendar for upcoming meeting dates
