Issue Briefs

The NCSC staff supporting the Traffic Resource Center periodically releases issue briefs on topics of interest to our court constituents.  PowerPoint slides are also available for some issue briefs and may be used for presentations as needed, as long as proper attribution is given to the National Center for State Courts.  Suggestions for new topics are welcome and may be sent to Deborah Smith at or Greg Hurley at

We recently gathered ten of the issue briefs below into a Traffic Issue Brief Compendium, which is available here. For physical copies of the compendium, email Greg Hurley at the email address listed above.
