NATIONAL MAXIMUM SPEED LIMIT AND HIGHWAY SAFETY PROGRAM REGIONAL WORKSHOPS

Four regional workshops were conducted addressing the National Maximum Speed Limit (NMSL) and highway safety programs. The attendees included the chief administrators and field commanders of state law enforcement agencies. The workshops accomplished the following major objectives: (1) to keep law enforcement administrators abreast of federal programs impacting on police traffic services, including the 55 NMSL, and to review the NHTSA's programs and research activities; (2) to provide state law enforcement administrators with the opportunity to identify key problem areas in the delivery of police traffic services to the NHTSA in order to provide direction for future NHTSA research efforts; (3) to review the Highway Safety Act of 1978 and attendant federal regulations as they impact on police traffic services, including the NMSL; and (4) to provide a forum for the participants for the exchange of ideas, mutual support, and regional planning for improvement in the delivery of police traffic services. Recommendations covering various aspects of state/federal relationships, highway safety programs, and combined efforts for NMSL enforcement were developed by the attendees.
