  • The HTS is regulated by:

1. Federal, State, Local Government

national highway safety act
National Highway Safety Act
  • Established by the federal government
    • Allows each state to make up set of laws (example: driving times, right on red)
    • Establishes a set of traffic safety guidelines
        • Reduce Risks
        • What are some risks?
    • Enforced by police, motor vehicle department, courts, and people.
how can you reduce your risk
How can you reduce your risk?

using the s i p d e process
Using the S.I.P.D.E. Process

S= SEARCH for possible hazards or risks

I= IDENTIFYobjects or conditions ahead that could interfere with your planned path of travel (look “12-15 seconds” ahead)

P= PREDICT what the risk/hazard may do or how it will affect your path of driving

D= DECIDE your safest plan of action

E= EXECUTE your plan
