Drive to Zero Transportation Safety Action Plan

Transportation safety is a top priority in Clackamas County. That’s why we’re updating our Transportation Safety Action Plan (TSAP). We need your help to update the plan and, even more importantly, to make our roads safe for all travelers.

Get involved

Our goal is to get to zero fatal and serious injury crashes by 2035.

The updated TSAP will help us meet that goal by providing information about key crash causes and factors including the roadway, the vehicle operator and the vehicle itself. Analyzing this data will provide valuable information to help the County develop strategies that will improve transportation system safety for all travelers – motorists, transit-users, bicyclists and pedestrians.

2012 Transportation Safety Action Plan (TSAP) Overview

Each year in the United States, nearly 40,000 people are killed in transportation crashes. Internationally, the high rate of fatalities caused the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare traffic crashes as an international health crisis in 2010.

Clackamas County’s 2012 TSAP outlined 10-year strategies for reducing fatal and serious injury crashes and implementing a county-wide safety culture, with a plan update in five years.

As the first-of-its-kind TSAP in the state, our plan broke new ground by applying a holistic approach to transportation safety with strategies to that include everyone in the community – not just traffic engineers and law enforcement personnel.

The plan also focuses on crash factors and causes rather than crash locations. Data shows that over 99 percent of crashes have a human error component sometimes combined with other factors like the roadway and the vehicle. With the location of the crash being largely random, predicting where a crash will occur is difficult, but predicting crash causes and key factors is easier because they tend to remain relatively constant.

From the safety data analysis, the 2012 TSAP identified these top three areas of concern:

Since 2012, the county has taken many steps toward accomplishing the TSAP goals, including:

Five years later, much has changed both nationally and locally related to safety.
