Improving the Success of Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) Programs to Encourage Safe Driving

Client: U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)


MDAC conducted a census of all law enforcement agencies with active or discontinued automated speed enforcement (ASE) programs for NHTSA.


This study was multi-modal – interviews were completed via mail, internet, and telephone.

The instrument, designed by MDAC in coordination with NHTSA, was created to investigate factors that contribute to the success or failure of an automated speed enforcement program.

This study had a very high response rate, achieved as a result of focused follow-up with law enforcement agencies by MDAC team members well known among the enforcement community.


The response rate for this study was greater than 80%.
