Grant Petersen, a member of the Dealer Advisory Board (DAB), will summarize for transportation board members progress the DAB has made in addressing automobile dealer licensing issues the past year. Petersen's presentation will come on the first of a two-day transportation board meeting Wednesday (Dec. 14) in the Auditorium at Headquarters.
The eight-member Dealer Advisory Board was established to assist and advise the department in the administration of the Idaho Dealer and Salesman Licensing Act. It also provides guidance to the department on other motor vehicle-related programs that are administered by the Division of Motor Vehicles.
Following are some of DAB’s activities in FY 2005:
Other board agenda items
Work Zone Safety Update
A comprehensive work zone safety policy has been drafted. It focuses on strategies that will protect both the traveling public and highway workers from work zone hazards. The ITD executive team has reviewed the proposal but has delayed a decision on implementing it because of new federal regulations for work zone safety and mobility.
FHWA is developing a guidance/training program to help
implement the new federal regulations.
Blueprint for Good Growth
The board also will meet with the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) board to review the draft. The intent is to finalize the document early next year.
