NORTH DAKOTA SELECTIVE TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM (STEP). PROJECT DIRECTOR'S REPORT
The Selective Traffic Enforcement Program task force operated in a rural environment and encompassed the area of two counties, Grand Forks County and Cass County. The overall objective was to secure voluntary compliance with existing traffic laws by the motoring public and provide for a reduction in traffic crashes and their severity. In Grand Forks County, the countermeasures of line patrol and conspicuous stationary observation patrol were employed. In Cass County a highly publicized public information program combined with a radar speed control was designed to bring about compliance by the motoring public with the existing speed limitations. In Cass County another experiment was to determine the effectiveness of an alcohol roadside screening device operated by selected officers in relationship to a control group not having access to the screening device.
