Highway Safety Menu


Our mission is to develop, promote and coordinate traffic safety initiatives designed to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities on Utah’s roadways.

The State of Utah benefits from federal funding aimed at improving safety on our roads.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration administers over $500 million in grant programs annually to the 50 States, DC, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Territories and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Under Section 405, NHTSA awards grants for occupant protection, State traffic safety information systems, impaired driving countermeasures, distracted driving, motorcyclist safety, State graduated driver licensing laws, and non-motorized safety. Regional offices help States use data to identify their highway safety problems, evaluate safety programs and activities, and provide technical assistance and training to State program managers.
