This evaluation workbook is intended for individuals responsible for planning and managing highway safety programs. In this age with millions of dollars being spent each year on highway safety improvement programs, the highway safety manager is faced with increasingly more complex budgetary and program development decisions. In order to be an effective and efficient manager, a number of systematic milestones must be met. First, the manager must develop a clear understanding of personal and organizational goals with relationship to highway safety. These goals should eventually focus on a reduction in the number and severity of motor vehicle accidents. Second, there must be a process of problem identification through which motor vehicle accidents are analyzed and over-represented elements are isolated. Once this is accomplished the third milestone is to develop a plan or strategy to solve the problem. This plan should result in countermeasures designed to impact the problems identified. (Author)
