MaineDOT's Safety Mission

A core part of MaineDOT’s mission is to provide a safe transportation system for all users. Safety is continually being evaluated, strategies developed and improvement actions initiated. This is being accomplished through:

  • Focused look at leading crash and injury trends – statewide and at individual locations.
  • Establishing transportation system crash improvement strategies.
  • Cooperative efforts with other state agencies and safety advocates to address the state’s road safety improvement priorities that include lane departure; safety belts; speed; alcohol and younger/older drivers. This will include safety outreach with a focus on driver behavior.
  • Addressing work zone safety issues through programs that reach MaineDOT employees, the general public, and others working in work zones.
  • Improve crash data and other transportation-related systems to enable enhanced data quality and accessibility.
  • Partnering with other stakeholders to create an integrated safety strategy.
