Transportation Safety Engineering is the Engineering art that prevents drivers from conflicting on the roadway, reduces the roadway problems that lead to traffic crashes and gives clear information to assist drivers to make safe driving decisions. In Florida, Transportation Safety Engineering is conducted at statewide and district or regional levels.
District Transportation Safety Engineering Functions
DHSMV can provide crash data for all General Data Requests (reports for a county, multiple counties, or the entire state). They can also provided non-site specific data queries for code values on the traffic crash report form.
Using DHSMV crash data and other FDOT data, the Safety Office Crash Records Section processes crash records to determine exact locations and can provide location-based crash analyses and listings or summaries of crash data. In addition, the Safety Office can provide geo-located data for crashes on the State Highway System and for crashes on public roads. To request crash data from the FDOT, contact the Safety Office in your District (see below for contacts).Crash reports that reveal the personal information concerning the parties involved in the crash and that are held by any agency that regularly receives or prepares information from or concerning the parties to motor vehicle crashes are confidential and exempt from the provisions of Section 119.07(1), F.S. for a period of 60 days after the date the report is filed. (Section 316.066 (3)(a), F.S.)
The information provided by the FDOT Safety Office has been compiled from information collected for the purpose of identifying, evaluating or planning safety enhancements. It is used to develop highway safety construction improvements projects which may be implemented utilizing Federal Aid Highway funds. Any document displaying this notice shall be used only for the purposes deemed appropriate by the Florida Department of Transportation. See Title 23, United States Code, Section 409.

Florida Highway Safety Manual Efforts
Florida Highway Safety Manual Efforts This link provides information on what implementation efforts have been done and are planned.
The Highway Safety Manual (HSM) is a useful tool to help practitioners in decision making. The HSM provides the best factual information and tools in a useful and widely accepted form and to facilitate roadway design and operational decisions based upon explicit consideration of their safety consequences. This manual strengthens the role of safety in road planning, design, maintenance, construction, and operations decision making. The manual features synthesis of validated highway research; procedures that are adapted and integrated to practice and; Analytical tools for predicting impact on road safety.
