ARCA - All Roads Crash Analysis

Section 1401 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (Public Law 109-59) amended Section 148 of Title 23, United States Code, to create a new Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as one of the Federal Highway Administration's "core" programs. The purpose of the HSIP is to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roads.

As part of the new HSIP, states are required to submit an annual report describing not less than 5 percent of their highway locations exhibiting the most severe safety needs. The intent of this provision is to raise public awareness of the highway safety needs and challenges in the states.

In addition to listing the locations, the states' reports are to include:

  • Potential remedies to the hazardous locations identified;
  • Estimated costs of the remedies; and
  • Impediments to implementation of the remedies other than costs.
Protection from Discovery and Admission into Evidence - Under 23 U.S.C. 148(g)(4) information collected or compiled for any purpose directly relating to this report shall not be subject to discovery or admitted into evidence in a Federal or State court proceeding or considered for other purposes in any action for damages arising from any occurrence at a location identified or addressed in the reports.

Additional information, including the specific legislative requirements, can be found in the guidance provided by the Federal Highway Administration. The updated web links for both the FHWA general guidance and the latest 4 years of FHWA Florida Five Percent Reports are provided in the Traffic Safety Portal in the section “Publications” and folder Papers and Reports.

Access to edit ARCA records is restricted to authorized personnel only. Please direct all questions including system access to:
