Auto and Traffic Safety Are The Focus Of 4 New US Senate Bills

Senators Edward Markey (D-MA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)  reintroduced a collection of 4 bills designed to improve automotive and traffic safety across the United States. The lawmakers — both of whom are members of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee — say they are releasing the proposals for inclusion in the congressional debate on a comprehensive infrastructure package and the next surface transportation reauthorization legislation. The bills cover the speed of auto recalls, auto manufacturing reporting standards, distracted driving rules,  and a focus on seat back integrity.
