ANALYZING THE FEASIBILITY OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE ADJUDICATION OF TRAFFIC OFFENSES. VOLUME I: TECHNICAL SUMMARY

The report provides information for use by local governmental analysts in conducting feasibility studies of the administrative adjudication of traffic offenses. The report describes experiences in other jurisdictions, and discusses issues that would normally be addressed in a benefit-cost analysis of alternative adjudicative systems for traffic offenses. These include basic arguments for administrative adjudication, legal and constitutional issues, anticipation of special interest group concerns, the monetary and nonmonetary treatment of benefits and costs, and the treatment of traffic safety issues. Methods of presentation of study findings and documentation for public information are also discussed along with tactical issues associated with planning and implementing a study.
