FHWA Provides Sufficient Guidance and Assistance To Implement the Highway Safety Improvement Program but Could Do More To Assess Program Results
On March 26, 2013, we issued a report on the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). We found that FHWA provides sufficient guidance and assistance to the States to implement HSIP. We also found that FHWA conducts limited evaluations of State reported HSIP data to report on the program’s impact. We made two recommendations to FHWA to strengthen HSIP. FHWA concurred with both of our recommendations.
