Stop-the-Mayhem Traffic Safety Campaign

As motor vehicles have grown larger, with increases in distracted driving and speeding, more cyclists and pedestrians are being seriously injured and killed. Our roads are still largely designed to carry motor vehicles and are unsafe for all other users.  ABC has joined with organizations locally and statewide for laws, policies and concrete changes to Stop the Mayhem and make our roadways safer for all.
