Vermont State Highway Safety Office
The Vermont State Highway Safety Office facilitates and supports, with federal grants, a statewide network to promote safe driving behavior on Vermont highways. 

Highway Safety Alliance
The Vermont Highway Safety Alliance is a network of like-minded private and public organizations working together to collect, share and use data to develop highway safety strategies integrating: road engineering and infrastructure; law enforcement and emergency medical services; and education and outreach.

Highway Safety Design Details
Highway Safety Design Details are details that have been developed, reviewed and approved for use, by the Highway Safety & Design Section, on all VTrans projects.

Rumble Stripes
Centerline rumble stripes are now included in all new paving projects. We have developed a set of design standards to determine exactly where they go, working to balance safety with the quality of life of adjacent residents.

Strategic Highway Safety Plan
The Vermont Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a major component and requirement of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) (23 U.S.C. § 148). It is a statewide-coordinated safety plan that provides a comprehensive framework for reducing highway fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. An SHSP identifies the State's key safety needs and guides investment decisions towards strategies and countermeasure with the most potential to save lives and prevent injuries.

Vermont 2023 Vulnerable Road User Safety Assessment
The 2023 Vulnerable Road User (VRU) Safety Assessment is an analysis of the State’s safety record with respect to vulnerable users, with an emphasis on fatalities and serious injuries, and the State’s plan to improve VRU safety.  The 2023 VRU Assessment is appended to the 2022-2026 Strategic Highway Safety Plan and will be included as part of future Strategic Highway Safety Plan updates.
