The Special Adjudication for Enforcement (SAFE) Project was designed to demonstrate the feasibility of using informal parajudicial hearings for adjudication of non-mandatory moving traffic violations (those offenses not requiring mandatory appearance in court). The SAFE procedures were intended to simplify the administrative tasks associated with the traditional arraignment/trial process. Evaluation based on fifteen months of operations has indicated that the project was easily and quickly incorporated into the existing District Courts system and reduced the administrative and judicial burden on the courts. The SAFE Project was continued with local funds after the NHTSA demonstration project was concluded.
