Local Road Safety Plans


Interested in a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP)? They can also be known as Action Plans or Safety Action Plans (especially in the USDOT Safe Streets and Roads for All [SS4A] Grant Program).

LRSPs are proven to save lives, so we want to help you make yours.

Here’s a short video overview of LRSPs to get started.

Though we have several other resources to help (see below), the Federal Highway Administration has also created an LRSP Do-it-Yourself website. The site has tutorial videos, templates, and example LRSPs from other agencies – everything you need to develop a plan of your own.

Here’s an overview video of the LRSP DIY site.

Visit FHWA’s Local Road Safety Plan website.
