ISP: Infrastructure Bill to Help Reduce Highway Fatalities

(IOCI RADIO) – The Illinois State Police (ISP) said the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed by Congress late last year will help reduce highway fatalities.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will build and repair roads and bridges, but also features provisions that will help law enforcement keep people safe, according to ISP Director Brendan Kelly. One requires anti-drunk driving technology.

There will also be new car bumper and hood standards to protect pedestrians and cyclists in case of an accident.

Kelly said the act also includes money to study new strategies for educating the public about Move-Over laws.
