Aggressive Driving Enforcement
Home | Contents
Form Community-Wide Partnerships

Private and civic organizations want to help get the word out about aggressive driving and the department’s enforcement efforts. These organizations have formed many successful alliances around the country to use their skill, knowledge, constituents and funding to educate the public with highway safety messages. They all need to work together to influence executive decisions about making enforcement a higher priority. A list of partnership organizations is included in the back of this publication.

  • Educators
  • Highway safety affiliates
  • Citizen activists
  • Government leaders
  • Media community
  • Entertainment industry
  • Law enforcement administrators
  • Law enforcement officers
  • Community-oriented policing administrators
  • Prosecutors and judges
  • Medical community
  • Business leaders and citizen groups
  • Insurers and insurance consortiums
  • Churches and civic groups
  • Victims of aggressive driving incidents
  • City, county, state health departments and other public health agencies
  • Local coalitions such as the Safe Communities Program (See http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/safecommunities or call (817) 978-3653 for more information)

Care should be given to encourage buy-in and support from private or civic organizations as the plan is developed. Civic groups such as Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Citizens Against Drug Impaired Driving (CANDID) and Citizens Against Speeding and Aggressive Driving (CASAD), have a special interest in taking the message out to the public. Lions Clubs, Kiwanis Clubs and other similar service organizations have aligned with law enforcement agencies to deliver highway safety messages to their constituents.

Not-for-profit organizations such as the American Institute for Public Safety and the National Road Safety Foundation have funds to produce mass media material. Documentaries, educational videos and public service announcements are available for television broadcast and for use in safety and enforcement programs.
