Factors Affecting the Adoption of Evidence-Based Approaches to Road Safety by State Policymakers

The project analyzes various aspects of state highway safety plans and approaches tied to the Toward Zero Deaths program. Rather than simply take an inventory of the roadway safety policy and approaches in each state, though, this project focuses on garnering a better understanding of why certain roadway safety provisions have – or have not – been adopted in the six Midwestern study states.
