55 NMSL (NATIONAL MAXIMUM SPEED LIMIT) AND DUI (DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE) ENFORCEMENT REGIONAL WORKSHOPS FOR STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT EXECUTIVES

Four regional workshops were conducted addressing 55 National Maximum Speed Limit (NMSL) and Driving Under Influence (DUI) enforcement programs for state law enforcement agencies. The participants in each of the workshop sessions included the chief administrator and field commander in charge of NMSL/DUI enforcement programs. The workshops accomplished the following objectives: (1) to keep state law enforcement administrators abreast of federal programs impacting on NMSL/DUI programs, and review programs and research activities of the NHTSA relating to police traffic services; (2) to provide administrators the opportunity to identify problem areas primarily in regard to NMSL/DUI, to the NHTSA in order to provide direction for future NHTSA research efforts; (3) to review first year results of the implementation of the Highway Safety Act of 1978 as they impact on police traffic services; and (4) to provide a forum for the exchange of information, primarily in regard to NMSL/DUI enforcement programs, among the state administrators. Recommendations were developed addressing state/federal relationships; NMSL/DUI legislative proposals; and regionally cooperative highway safety programs. Throughout these recommendations run the concurrent themes of the requirement for more funding and the necessity of more stringent sanctions against NMSL/DUI violators.
