Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Transportation Safety, Transportation Safety Plan for the Period July 1, 1981- June 30, 1982

Report No: 82-R10

Published in 1981

About the report:

Senate Bill 85, passed by the General Assembly in 1978, renamed the Highway Safety Division of Virginia the Department of Transportation Safety (VDTS) and authorized it to participate in the evaluation of current safety measures in all modes of transportation to recommend to the Governor and General Assembly possible corrective measures, policies and plans. This first Transportation Safety Plan provides an overview of the Commonwealth's programs and safety activities in water, air, rail and mass transit transportation. Furthermore, this document is designed to identify problems of non-highway transportation modes*, establish safety goals and objectives, and propose some possible solutions to the problems identified. *It should be noted at the outset that it is recognized that most mass transit activity in Virginia utilizes rubber-tired vehicles traveling by highway. However, for purposes of simplicity, this report refers to all of the above cited transportation modes as "non-highway".
