Problem drivers are being identified earlier under the first year of a federal demonstration project (Special Adjudication for Enforcement - SAFE) designed to test the value of special lower court or administrative systems to handle the bulk or minor traffic offenses. In Seattle, the site of the first SAFE project, court efficiency has improved with a drop in the number of cases pending trial. During the first 9 1/2 months of operation, SAFE processed more than 17,000 traffic cases. The informal magistrate-hearing portion of the SAFE process was cited as a major reason for improved driving behavior patterns by the defendents.
