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.

The purpose of this sample manual is to establish consistent program and project management procedures for staff and subrecipients to guide the administration of the states' traffic safety program in compliance with U.S. DOT, NHTSA regulations.

All files are in Microsoft Word format so staff can manipulate the content to best meet their needs. To begin, save the files to your computer and open them in Word.
