Blueprint partners are a group of safety advocates representing the engineering, enforcement, education and emergency medical services areas. The Blueprint is a collective effort of the (MCRS) and safety professionals throughout the state. The MCRS leads the charge to implement the Blueprint and encourage safety partners to focus their activities and programs in support of the “Focus Five” and subsequent emphasis areas and strategies. The state has been divided into seven regional coalitions that have each developed a safety plan. The coalitions meet on a regular basis to discuss their concerns, review how their countermeasures are working and consider ways to improve their efforts.

In 2003, Missouri decided to participate with the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) in a national effort to reduce the preventable tragedies associated with traffic crashes. Utilizing a partnership approach, the Blueprint outlined strong opportunities to reduce fatal and serious injuries on Missouri’s roads.

Missouri's established goals for the previous three Blueprints: 1,000 or fewer fatalities by 2008; 850 or fewer fatalities by 2012 and 700 or fewer fatalities by 2016. The first two Blueprint goals were achieved. The interim goal of 700 or fewer fatalities must be met in order to reach zero deaths. Missouri's ultimate Blueprint goal is that no lives are lost due to a traffic crash. Zero fatalities is our ultimate goal. How can we accept anything else?

As per MAP-21, if a roadway is functionally classified as a rural major or minor collector or a rural local road with a severe crash in the previous 5-year period, it is classified as a High Risk Rural Road. Focusing on severe crash experience is a guiding principle of “Missouri’s Blueprint - A Partnership Toward Zero Deaths”.
