Highway Safety Corridors & Task Forces

Since 1992, CHP has received funds from the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to establish task forces comprised of representatives from city, county, regional, state, and federal government agencies, and the private sector.

The mission of each task force is to assess a high-collision highway, truck, driving under the influence, and/or pedestrian corridor, make recommendations to improve traffic safety on the identified roadway or pedestrian site, and implement, if economically feasible, those recommendations.

The first task force assessed State Route (SR) 1 in Ventura County. Other task forces have worked to improve traffic safety on the following corridors:
