The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation is charged to reduce the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities on the nation's highways. NHTSA has directed its resources and energies to develop and implement a strategic "Program Priority Plan." One objective in this plan is to provide current information on effective program content for States to use in producing and assessing their traffic safety programs. This report contains the six Highway Safety Program Advisories that have been developed by NHTSA. The Program Advisories cover each of NHTSA's National 402 Priority Program areas: impaired driving, occupant protection, motorcycle safety, traffic records, police traffic services, and emergency medical services. These Advisories reflect the experience of States in traffic safety program content and highlight state-of-the-art knowledge in highway safety. The Advisories are designed as "working" documents. When implemented as a whole, the components of the Advisories provide a framework for producing and assessing a balanced highway safety program and a tool with which States can assess their own programs.
