Transportation

highways and motor vehicles law: an overview The term "highway" includes all public roads and ways. Highway law is concerned with the regulation and maintenance of all means of travel open to the public-- such as turnpikes, toll roads, bridges, ferries, navigable waters, etc. Generally, all roads which the legislature has power to establish are public roads. Highways are distinguished from private roads in that highways are intended for public use, and are maintained at the public's expense.

Both state and federal highway law exists, but emphasis should be placed on local rules and regulations. Typically, in most jurisdictions, highway officers are personally liable for injuries to persons or property resulting from acts of their negligence in connection with the construction and repair of highways, streets and bridges, but there is some authority to the contrary.

Established in 1966 by 49 U.S.C. 102, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) establishes overall transportation policy for the United States. Its goal is to ensure a "coordinated, effective administration of the transportation programs of the Federal Government." Among the programs under the DOT's administration are:
  1. Federal Highway Administration
  2. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
  3. Federal Transit Administration
