Phase I of the 55 MPH Impact Program Evaluation, conducted in Connecticut, was a pilot test of the procedures, instrumentation and methods to be employed in the overall demonstration project. The purpose of the demonstration is to assess the relationship between specific levels of police patrol strength on limited access highways and motorists' compliance with the 55 mph speed limit. The present report describes actual experience with the speed measuring equipment to be employed, the utility of data collection procedures and forms, and scheduling enforcement patrols. In addition, summary data are presented on the enforcement activity recorded by baseline and increased levels of patrol.
