      On June 12-14, 1990, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), U.S. Department of Transportation, hosted the Symposium on Effective Highway Accident Countermeasures in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), U.S. Department of Transportation. Held in Washington, DC, the Symposium took place in response to President Bush's Management by Objectives goal "to improve overall transportation safety and security" and "to reduce the highway death rate by 1992." The Symposiums stated objectives, therefore, were to identify the most effective and practical short-term (within 2 years) countermeasures to highway accidents and to develop strategies for their implementation. More than 255 participants representing different highway safety fields engineers, law enforcement officials, educators, researchers, and others) attended the Symposium, which featured an arduous 2.5 day agenda (See appendix A). Ronald R. Fiedler, Wisconsin's Secretary of Transportation and Governor's Highway Safety Representative, served as moderator. Gene McCormick, Deputy Administrator of FHWA, opened and closed the Symposium. Thomas D. Larson, Administrator of FHWA, and Jeffrey Miller, Deputy Administrator of NHTSA, officially welcomed the group.
