NHTSA has awarded Michigan nearly 1 million dollars each year since FY2017 to address pedestrian and bicycle safety programs with federal funding specific to supporting law enforcement mobilization, law enforcement training and public education. The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) collaborated with The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) to identify the top cities which had both the highest number of pedestrian and bicycle crashes in a 5-year period. Local and regional law enforcement agencies were invited to work on an overtime enforcement pilot project, and OHSP and UMTRI conducted in-depth presentations on crash data analysis and grant project requirements to those agencies in January 2018.
