South Dakota Office of Highway Safety

The Office of Highway Safety administers the Federal Highway Safety Grant Program in South Dakota, enabling local/state agencies and non-profit organizations to develop and implement traffic safety programs designed to reduce the number of traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities occurring on South Dakota roadways. The purpose of the highway safety effort is to minimize, as much as realistically possible, the economic and human loss that results from traffic crashes.

The South Dakota Office of Highway Safety provides technical and financial assistance to state and local government agencies and non-profit organizations to implement programs aimed at reducing the human and economic loss resulting from traffic crashes.

We receive approximately $1 million annually from the United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to provide funding support to state and local agencies and other organizations to promote traffic safety on South Dakota's roadways. Additionally, a $7 annual fee on motorcycle registrations is used to fund a statewide motorcycle rider education program through the South Dakota Safety Council.

Our efforts are focused on increasing the use of safety belts and child restraints by South Dakotans; reducing the incidence of drinking and driving; improving the safety of our roadways; and improving the trauma system in the state to ensure those who are injured in traffic crashes receive quick response and high quality treatment of their injuries.
