FAMU Students Work to Improve Highway Safety

Florida A&M University students held a workshop to discuss what can be done to improve highway safety.

Through researching various stats from around the country, FAMU students hope to lower drunk driving incidents while increasing the number of people wearing their safety belts.

The goal is specifically aimed at improving highway safety among teenagers and young adults ages 16 to 34.

"What we're doing is presenting this information to various researchers from the community and abroad and taking their opinions on the measures we've come up with and seeing what they think we should do," says William Curry, a FAMU grant research specialist.

The workshop was funded in part by a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
