The National Sheriffs’ Association, through the Traffic Safety Committee, developed of a “best practices” guidelines by the NSA to act as a model “wrong way driving” response for law enforcement. Law enforcement response to the report of a wrong-way driver can be one of the most dangerous situations an officer can face while on patrol and each year many officers are injured and killed as a result of being struck by wrong-way drivers. The importance of a unified law enforcement response to the report of a wrong-way driver and the threat it poses for officer safety, the safety of the motoring public, and the community cannot be overstated. Please find enclosed the results of the efforts of the Traffic Safety Committee on the issue of wrong way driver response.
