NTSB PRESS CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS 2010 MOST WANTED

SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS TO STATES

 

************************************************************

 

The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a press

conference next week to update the status of its Most Wanted

List of Safety Improvements directed at state governments. 

Items currently on the list are state laws to require

booster seats for young children, primary seat belt laws,

graduated licensing laws for young drivers, hard core

drinking driver laws, and recreational boating safety laws. 

 

Despite the fact that all of these laws have been proven to

save lives, many states have not yet adopted them. 

Reporting on its annual review, the Board may consider new

items for the list.

 

Members of the NTSB will be available for individual

interviews following the event.

 

DATE: Tuesday, November 16.

 

TIME: 10:30 a.m.
