Nationwide Group Calls On Illinois To Do More To Prevent Highway Deaths

A nationwide group is calling on Illinois to do more to prevent highway deaths by passing laws to promote highway safety. The group called Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, based in Washington DC, has released its latest report on state highway safety laws. It says improvement is needed in Illinois because of gaps in the recommended legislation. The group says the legislation would improve highway safety by focusing on all-rider motorcycle helmet requirements and improved child passenger safety standards.
