GHSA Releases Updated Highway Safety Countermeasures Guide

A February 2007 edition of "Countermeasures That Work: A Highway Safety Countermeasure Guide for State Highway Safety Offices" -- a reference from the Governors Highway Safety Association to help members select effective countermeasures for major highway safety problem areas -- is now available, GHSA announced.

The original guide was developed in 2005 by GHSA with funding from NHTSA, with GHSA Executive Director Barbara Harsha serving as executive editor. Many other resources are available from the association, including "Speeding," at www.statehighwaysafety.org/html/publications/pdf/surveystates2005/speeding_intro.pdf, the fifth and latest Survey of the States document.

The "Speeding" calls speeding "highway safety's next big issue." It includes accounts of the speeding situation submitted by 47 states' highway safety offices and also the District of Columbia. Respondents were asked to state what proportion of fatal and injury crashes they attribute to speeding, the annual number of speeding citations or convictions in their jurisdiction, speed limits applying to trucks, and whether and how they define "aggressive driving."
