Special Rule for Older Drivers and Pedestrians
On July 6, 2012, the President signed into law the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) (P.L. 112- 141), which created a Special Rule for Older Drivers and Pedestrians. The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (P.L. 114-94) continued that Special Rule. The purpose of this guidance is to clarify:
- The circumstances in which the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Special Rule applies to States
- Which information States should report to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
- How States should implement the Special Rule
This guidance supersedes guidance FHWA issued on February 13, 2013, related to the Older Drivers and Pedestrians Special Rule under MAP-21.
