PROGRAM AND PRFORMANCE

1. Program Direction and Coordination

This activity provides direction, coordination, and implementation of overall policies, programs, and objectives. Staff offices carry out responsibilities in planning, scientific matters, programs, legal services and civil rights.

2. Motor Vehicle Program

This activity includes development of motor vehicle and tire safety standards, the procedures for evaluating and assuring compliance, and studies to determine the effect of standards on product costs and the necessary lead time for implementing the standard by the industry.

3. Traffic Safety Program

This activity provides policy, program and technical guidance to the States in executing highway safety programs, to determine their effectiveness and to administer the Federal assistance aspects of these programs, to conduct training and education programs, and to conduct demonstration projects that will speed the implementation of new safety techniques into practice.

4. Research and Analysis

This activity provides for motor vehicle and highway safety research and development and for the collection of data to determine the relationship between motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment performance characteristics and (1) Crashes involving motor vehicles, and (2) the occurrence of death or personal injury as a result of such crashes. The National Driver Register, which provides centralized infornation on license revocations, is also funded under this activity. Increases are requested to expand research on techniques to counter driving by alcoholics, to improve the crash survivability features of motor vehicles, and to fabricate a small number of experimental safety vehicles.

5. Staff and Administrative Support Services

Provides for services, such as budgeting, personnel management, office services, contracting, and procurement to support all activities conducted by this organization.

6. Compliance Test Facility

Provides for the design and initiation of constructing and equipping a compliance test facility needed to perform tests on motor vehicles, tires, and other motor vehicle equipment to assure compliance with Federal motor vehicle safety standards. These ts are undertaken to determine manufacturers' observance of existing standards; to investigate consumer reports of safety defects; and to evaluate test procedures for proposed standards.
