URBAN TRANSPORTATION INNOVATION: ADOPTING AND IMPLEMENTING AUTO RESTRAINT POLICIES

To explain political and institutional opposition to auto restraint measures, this paper argues that they are "fragile" policy initiatives which face particularly difficult obstacles in (1) building a supportive political constituency, (2) securing necessary approvals from decisionmakers, and (3) being implemented by public agencies. Although these problems afflict any auto restriction proposal to some degree, specific restraint options vary in feasibility depending on features of the policy design, the restrictions already in force, and the requirements of state and local law.
