Highway Safety Laws
Safe Connections and Resources has been created as a tool to enable easy access to safety education and resources for a variety of purposes. Laws are important to know, and are created in a variety of ways affected by statistical information and risk, political dynamics and funding. Use the links below to begin the search for your project needs.
For our purposes, we have supplied a simple guide to the best available information for traffic safety laws. But legal interpretation of safety for other areas, like home safety, school safety, community safety and workplace safety is dependent on local regulation and control, engineering and technology, and a complicated network of health and safety rules, regulations and responsibilities.
Organizations like your state health department, human services offices, Fire Department or Commissioner, Education Department; national organizations/resources like OSHA, the CDC, and others are dependable sources for safety laws and regulations. See our Resources page.
