Review of Traffic Provisions of KRS/KAR and Kentucky Drivers Manual

This study included a review of selected sections of KRS and KAR that relate to traffic and safety. Also, the Kentucky Drivers Manual was reviewed. The review involved an evaluation of the applicability and consistency of these documents as well as their agreement with nationally recognized standards and guidelines. Detailed comments were provided to the Kentucky State Police after a thorough review of the Kentucky Drivers Manual. An emphasis was placed on updating portions of the manual where traffic control devices were described, as well as a general update to conform with the Uniform Vehicle Code. Many of these recommended revisions were incorporated into the revised manual. Each section of KRS Chapter 189 and each chapter of KAR Titles 601 and 603 were reviewed. Modifications or questions concerning various aspects of the legislation or regulations were identified for several sections or chapters. Members of the study advisory committee were requested to review and concur with the recommendations. All of the comments were then summarized and presented to the advisory committee for their comments and suggestions. A list of recommended revisions or modifications was prepared and reviewed, and approved by the committee.
