Countermeasures That/At Work Updates

The objectives of this project are to develop the 11th and 12th editions of Countermeasures That Work and the 2nd edition of Countermeasures At Work. The Countermeasures That Work guide was originally prepared in 2005 and is now updated biennially with the 10th edition to be published in 2020. Countermeasures That Work addresses countermeasures in the ten program areas of alcohol- and drug-impaired driving, seat belt use and child restraints, speeding and speed management, distracted driving, drowsy driving, motorcycle safety, young drivers, older drivers, pedestrian safety, and bicycle safety. Each of these topic chapters includes a short background section relaying current data trends that is followed by a description of applicable countermeasures, and an explanation their effectiveness, use, cost, and time to implement. The guide additionally provides a list of resource websites and references for each topic. This project will update the 11th edition, which will be published in 2021, and the 12th edition, which will be published in 2023. The 11th edition of Countermeasures That Work will cover material published in the two-year period between 6/1/2018-5/31/2020, and the 12th edition will cover the interval between 6/1/2020-5/31/2022. The companion document Countermeasures At Work will be published in the interim between the 11th and 12th editions of Countermeasures That Work. The 2nd Countermeasures At Work edition will update the current four- and five-star countermeasure write-ups with new localities that are using the targeted effective countermeasures. The 2nd edition will also add a three-star countermeasure locality synopses.
