More States Fail in Highway Safety Report

Source: American City and County, January 14, 2010

Several states dropped in their safety ratings in the Washington-based Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety’s (Advocates) 2010 Roadmap Report on State Highway Safety Laws. The safety rating decreases were a result of the Advocates’ inclusion of text messaging restrictions, graduated driver licensing (GDL) programs and ignition‐interlock laws for drunk driving offenders in the report’s analysis. Six states that last year earned Green ratings, the highest grade for model performance, this year fell to Yellow ratings, and an additional six states fell from Yellow to the worst‐performing Red rating.
