Local Road Safety Plan
The San Bernardino County Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) identifies and evaluates collision hot spots and systemic risk factors on the County’s road network throughout unincorporated areas. and identifies proven countermeasures that can be implemented through roadway design changes and partnerships with stakeholders. An LRSP is a means for providing unincorporated County areas with an opportunity to address unique roadway safety needs while contributing to the success of the California Strategic Highway Safety Plan and statewide safety goals. The LRSP offers a proactive approach to addressing the County’s roadway safety needs and demonstrates the County’s responsiveness to safety challenges. This LRSP builds on the County’s prior roadway safety efforts and will serve as a resource for the County when it applies for future safety infrastructure funding under various state and federal grant programs.
