Federal law requires each state to create a Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) as part of receiving federal transportation funding. The SHSP is intended to be a data-driven approach to reduce roadway fatalities and serious injuries. Most states place an emphasis on bicycling and walking safety in their SHSP, but several states with above average percentages of fatalities for people either biking and walking do not, including New York, Nevada, Delaware, Rhode Island, Louisiana, and Alaska.
