Indiana Awarded “Green Light” for Traffic Safety Laws

Highway safety is important to the Indianapolis car accident lawyers at Stewart & Stewart Attorneys. That’s why we’re thrilled to learn the Hoosier State recently received praise for efforts to keep motorists safe.

An article from My Wabash Valley states the rating was given by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety based on the passing of certain traffic safety laws, such as laws requiring all motorcyclists to wear helmets and all motorists to use seat belts .

Indiana received the “green light” rating—the best available rating—because the state passed 11 of 15 suggested safety laws. Areas where the state can still make improvements include creating tighter regulations for inexperienced teen drivers.

Raising the minimum age for  learners’ permits to 16 years old and placing restrictions on teenagers operating vehicles at night are just a few of the suggestions made. Indiana has also been asked to pass a law requiring all motorcyclists to wear helmets and convicted drunk drivers to have ignition interlock systems installed on their vehicles.

At Stewart & Stewart Attorneys, we would like to applaud the efforts that have been made to improve Indiana’s highway safety rating. Our Indianapolis personal injury attorneys would also like to encourage the public to continue practicing safe driving habits.
