State Highway Safety Showcase

These showcases provide an opportunity for State Highway Safety Offices to share their program successes and innovative practices or learn from what's happening in other states.

Lyft Grant Results: Louisiana

The Louisiana Highway Safety Commission (LHSC) was one of five State Highway Safety Offices to receive a grant from GHSA and ride hailing company Lyft to prevent impaired driving during the 2018 holiday season. With its grant, LHSC complemented its annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" enforcement campaign with social media messaging to spotlight discounted Lyft rides.

Ford DSFL and NRSF Grant Results: Montana

In 2018, Montana’s State Highway Traffic Safety Office (SHTSS) was awarded grants by both Ford Driving Skills for Life and The National Road Safety Foundation, Inc.'s partnerships with GHSA. With these funds, SHTSS launched a statewide contest between Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) chapters to create peer-to-peer teen safe driving campaigns, with an emphasis on drowsy driving.

Michigan "Driving Change" Bicyclist Safety Campaign

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has partnered with the City of Grand Rapids for “Driving Change,” an innovative campaign promoting bicyclist safety. Having recently made significant infrastructural improvements to enhance bicyclist safety, Grand Rapids was chosen as the pilot city for this campaign, which seeks to educate bicyclists and motorists about the infrastructure changes and encourage healthy relationships and respect between road users.

Missouri Buckle Up Phone Down Campaign

Early in 2017, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) launched the Buckle Up Phone Down (BUPD) challenge to drive down the increasing number of fatalities on Missouri roadways. The challenge focuses on two critical issues every Missourian can help address: unbuckled fatalities and distracted driving crashes. While only 13 percent of Missourians aren't buckling up, nearly two-thirds of people killed in crashes in the state are unbuckled.
