Abstract

This report addresses the question of how legal and administrative systems may support the operation or effectiveness of the total system of traffic law enforcement. In Chapter 1 road safety and traffic enforcement are presented as the efforts of several inter-linked organisations and subsequently we discuss the possible meanings of the term “support” for police enforcement. In our modern society we will increasingly find many organisations committed to or involved with road safety problems. Success or failure of an enforcement policy is not only determined by the internal functioning of the police organisation, but determined by the way in which different organisations, police, road authorities, publicity organisations etc. work together in a professional network and coordinate their activities. In this view, the quality of traffic law enforcement is
determined by the extent to which activities are geared to each other to make up an effective chain of enforcement and supporting measures.
