New Jersey has one of the most comprehensive sets of roadway safety laws in the country, according to a highway safety report released today. The Garden State came in second only to the District of Columbia, meeting most requirements regarding seat belt laws, impaired driving, distracted driving and teenage driving.
States were ranked based on 15 driver safety laws selected by Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, an alliance of consumer, health and safety groups, and insurance companies and agents who lobby for driver safety laws.
New Jersey scored a 13 out of 15. The state lacks laws requiring an ignition interlock device for all drunken driving offenders, 30-50 hours of supervised driving for teen motorists, and a ban on teen drivers between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Read more in Star Ledger.
a visit to lakewood, could change all that…!
the question is not how many laws you have, but if their working. Let them take a poll of the number of accidents and the number of fatalities in these accidents.
Don’t you wish we could say that NJ *drivers* are the best in the country?
To #1 All in agreement. Good luck to all the lakewood drivers.
to bad they do not know about the laws , like the wild wild west here
is ‘best’ defined by most numerous, or by least enforced? 🙂
