Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety is a non-profit group that strives to make America's roads safer. To do this, the highway safety advocacy group monitors current, proposed and suggested laws for each state. They have also worked to build coalitions in an attempt to advance highway and auto safety.

Below, the Milwaukee auto accident attorneys at Hupy and Abraham list resources and information provided by Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety.

The Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety are known for their dedication to traffic safety and traffic laws that they see as important in increasing the safety of the nation's highways, byways and city streets.

Though the experienced personal injury lawyers at Hupy and Abraham believe in reducing the number of fatalities and injuries on the roads of Milwaukee and across Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois, we also believe that riders and drivers have the right to maintain their personal freedoms.  Hopefully, a balance between the two will allow for both the freedom and safety of all drivers and riders.
