National Aggressive Driving Action Guide: A Criminal Justice Approach

This Guide, for use by State and local officials, legislative bodies, criminal justice practitioners, highway safety advocates and related organizations and communities, provides strategies and recommendations resulting a series of meetings among distinguished criminal justice professionals - law enforcement leaders, prosecutors, judges, and a representative from the defense bar - and NHTSA staff, who comprised an Aggressive Driving Implementation Team formed from attendees at the 1999 DOT Aggressive Driving and the Law: A Symposium. It contains a framework that States can use to address the problem of aggressive driving.
