Closing Comment

After reading through this guidebook, a potential partner should have a better understanding of:

  • SHSOs and what they do to address highway safety problems
  • The opportunities and limitations of working with an SHSO
  • The types of activities that can be undertaken.

The one lesson that should be very clear is that every SHSO is different, with different highway safety problems, planning processes, and opportunities. The best way to work with the SHSO is to find out what those problems, processes and opportunities are in your State. Develop a relationship with the SHSO and offer to work with the office on highway safety issues of mutual concern and interest. Keep the channels of communication open with the SHSO. If you do all of this, then you and your SHSO will develop a highly satisfactory and successful working partnership, enabling both of you to tackle successfully the pressing highway safety problems of the day.
