Transportation Performance Management

 

State Highway Safety Report (2020) - Oregon

Select HSIP Report Year:

The following provides a summary of the Highway Safety Improvement Program’s (HSIP) safety performance measures and State safety performance targets. As per the Safety PM Final Rule, States are required to set annual safety performance targets in the HSIP annual report for the number of fatalities, rate of fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT), number of serious injuries, rate of serious injures per 100 million VMT, and number of non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries. The safety performance targets are based on 5-year rolling averages. States have the flexibility to use the methodology they deem most appropriate. FHWA encourages States to review data sets and trends and consider factors that may affect targets. The safety performance targets should be data-driven, realistic, and attainable and should align with the performance management framework and legislative intent.

A State Department of Transportation (DOT) has met or made significant progress towards meeting its safety performance targets when at least four of the five safety performance targets established under 23 CFR 490.209(a) have been met or the actual outcome is better than the baseline performance. The baseline performance is the 5-year average ending with the year prior to the establishment of the target.

The Basis for Target and Additional Comments are provided by the State in their HSIP Annual Report and have not been edited by FHWA. Any questions about individual State reports should be directed to the respective State DOT. For additional information about each State's HSIP, the complete reports are available at https://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/hsip/reports/.

More information and resources on Safety Performance Management are available at https://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/hsip/spm/.

    The 2021 SHSP (TSAP) is anticipated to be adopted by the OTC at the recommendation of the OTSC in September, 2021. The 2022 HSIP performance target was developed during the current Strategic Highway Safety Plan update and was agreed upon by a multidisciplinary working group. The 2022 target is based on 2015-2019 crash data (decrease traffic fatalities to 444 by December 31, 2022). Annual targets will be documented and approved through an annual target setting process with the OTS. ***While the Performance Targets for the HSP and the HSIP do not match, they are in alignment with the SHSP (TSAP). ***The HSP reported two separate targets for fatalities, one using State data (which aligns with the TSAP and HSIP) and one using FARS with a trend analysis (which is the pre-populated value above).

Safety Performance Target Assessment

PLEASE NOTE: Each State’s safety performance target assessment is based on its own State-specific target methodology and program philosophy. Therefore, conclusions should not be drawn based only on the information in the Safety Performance Target Assessment Summary table. For example, the State may have set aggressive targets, and not met those targets, while another State may have set more easily attainable targets, and met those targets. FHWA understands that each State’s safety program is unique and therefore does not prescribe a methodology for States to set targets. States have the flexibility to use the methodology they deem most appropriate when setting their safety performance targets.
