A new study shows support for more laws on highway safety

By

A Triple-A study finds a majority of Americans support additional laws and want more action by government officials to improve highway safety. Triple-A Auto Club South Manager Karen Morgan says the results indicate motorists support more, not less action by the government to make roads safer.

“They’re looking for more enforcement of the current driving safety laws. They’re also looking for more laws to prevent people from doing dangerous behavior,” she said.

The survey was released just ahead of the United Nations’ official launch of the ‘Decade of Action on Road Safety’ campaign, which aims to stabilize and then reduce global road deaths by 2020.
