GHSA Policies and Procedures Manual

Updated in 2013 to reflect the new requirements under the MAP-21 Interim Final Rule. Additions have been underlined for ease of identification.

Best practice requires that the State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) have in place a current policies and procedures manual which documents standard operating procedures and the management of the traffic safety program.
