Six Legislative Initiatives for Improving Roadway Safety



The 2018 Massachusetts Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is proposing that Massachusetts consider six high-leverage policies to reduce the frequency and severity of roadway fatalities. These legislative measures are high-leverage because they target frequently occurring types of crashes and address the interconnected nature of crashes such as speeding, driver distraction, and impaired driving.
