On March 11, 2014, the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register as required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The NPRM proposes safety performance measures and State DOT and MPO requirements for establishing and reporting specific annual targets for fatalities and serious injuries for the purposes of carrying out the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The public is encouraged to review the NPRM and submit comments to the docket. The comment period closes on June 9, 2014.
USDOT will sponsor a webcast event to provide 1) an overview of the approach to implementation of the safety performance requirements in MAP-21; and 2) details of the Safety Performance Measures NPRM. The webcast will be delivered on March 13, 2014 from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. Eastern Time and will be repeated on March 17, 2014 from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. Eastern Time. Both webcast events will cover the same materials. Registration is now open to the public.
