ATA: Lawmakers need to improve highway safety

   Leaders of the American Trucking Association called on lawmakers and policymakers in Washington Wednesday to take steps to improve domestic trade and make U.S. highways safer.
   “This time of year is a good one for self-reflection and analysis,” said ATA President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Graves. “We hope our leaders in Washington will take the necessary steps to make our roads safer and improve the flow of goods in our economy.” 
   Some of the proactive steps ATA’s list include “identifying sustainable, efficient and reliable funding for roads and bridges;” championing safety technology; “working with state agencies to place far greater focus on commercial and noncommercial vehicle traffic enforcement;” and improving databases.
