Illegal Passing: 
Real–Life Successes

A number of communities have taken on the challenge of reducing the incidence of stop–arm violations. They have approached the problem in various ways. This section looks at some of those programs' experiences. The hope is that reading about the trials and successes of others will give you food for thought as you develop or expand your program.

Each program description includes five sections:

   • Description/Activities
