Traffic safety on tribal lands
National Conference of State Legislatures, Jun 30, 2004 - Health & Fitness - 11 pages
Native Americans are disproportionately affected by motor vehicle and pedestrian crashes. Because of cultural, language and geographic differences, many interventions that have successfully reduced U.S. traffic-related fatalities and injuries are not effective for tribal communities. This publication discusses how tribes can use traffic safety laws and enforcement, road design and Safe Communities programs and offers suggestions for tribal leaders, state legislators, traffic safety advocates, public health professionals and others to consider when planning traffic safety interventions on tribal lands.--Publisher's description.
