Note To: Larry Darnes, HTV-31

From: Jim Overton, HNG-12

Subject: Eligibility of Priority Vehicle Control Systems (Ref. your August 4 note to me)

Date: August 19, 1992

As a result of ISTEA's amendment to the definition of a "highway safety improvement project" in 23 U.S.C. 101 to include installation of priorfty control systems for emergency vehicles at signalized intersections, we agree that the in-vehicle components of such a system would be eligible for Federal participation. It is expected that the State would have in place a means of accounting for the location of and the adequate maintenance of all in-vehicle components, either in public or private vehicles, paid for with Federal-aid funds

This position has been cleared through Jerry Poston, HNG-12, and larry Staron, HNG-10.
