State governors can lead charge in reducing car crashes

Highway safety is a significant issue of concern for drivers on the streets in Virginia as well as state and local officials. Auto crashes can be the cause of devastating personal injuries, severe property damage and other major costs.

The study focuses on the role that state governments can play in improving roadway safety, especially the importance of coordinating actions and efforts between different agencies and task forces.
