Florida is determined to drive down fatalities and injuries on our streets and highways. "With more than 19 million residents and nearly 84 million annual visitors traveling on 121,000+miles of roads, it is a challenge to ensure the safety of Florida's traveling public. The SHSP is an interagency plan to address the challenge by focusing on engineering, enforcement, education, and emergency response solutions." -- Governor Rick Scott
