Safety Performance Measures
In order to help transportation agencies better understand TPM federal regulations and requirements, USDOT and FHWA have created the video series, "TPM Essentials." The series comprises 18 short clips; each focuses on a specific aspect of federal TPM. The entire series can be found on FHWA's website here or on Youtube here.
This video focuses in on safety performance measures—specifically the five national performance measures: number of fatalities, rates of fatalities per 100 million VMT, number of serious injuries, rate of serious injuries per 100 million VMT, and number of non-motorized fatalities and non-motorized serious injuries. The video outline is as follows:
- What the safety measures are
- What the measures assess
- How the measures were established
