As the introductory volume to the 19-volume Highway Safety Program Manual (which provides guidance to State and local governments on preferred highway safety practices), the document concentrates on aspects of planning and administration of a statewide highway safety program. Topics discussed are: the purpose of planning and administration, program authorization, and applicable legislation. Program development, operations, administration requirements, and recommendations, together with an evaluation of the program, outline a suggested management approach to highway safety which embraces all highway safety functions and their relationships to national standards. The role of local government is briefly described. Three types of reports are explained: management information, evaluation, and those for the National Highway Safety Bureau. Appendixes include a glossary of definitions, an example of State enabling legislation, and an example of a State executive order. (NH)
