Highway safety failures widespread in U.S.

Posted On Fri, January 13, 2012

The 2012 Roadmap to State Highway Safety Laws was released by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, and showed that eight states had unsatisfactory safety ratings.

Those states were Mississippi, South Dakota, Wyoming, Ohio, Nebraska, Montana, Virginia and Arizona, according to the report. The rating of red explains that these states are lagging significantly in highway safety practices. There was a total of 17 states with the highest rating of green, while the rest were in the yellow - or middle - category.

"If states want to save lives and save money, they should look to the 2012 Roadmap to State Highway Safety Laws for guidance," said Jacqueline Gillan, president of Advocates. "This report shows that too many states have unacceptable and deadly gaps in their traffic safety laws.  Political leadership and action are needed now."

Even if a consumer practices safe driving habits, it is important to be aware of the dangers posed by other drivers. Americans can feel they are better covered on the roads if they compare auto insurance quotes, and select the option that is the best fit.
