Local Legislators Call for Broader Limo Safety Reforms

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer and North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth call on the National Traffic Safety Board for broader limousine safety reforms.

Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth joined with U.S. Senator Charles Schumer recently at New Hyde Park Memorial High School calling on the National Traffic Safety Board for broader limousine safety reforms.

Supervisor Bosworth stood in support of the Senator’s call asking the NTSB to place the issue on its “Most Wanted List” and focus on gathering more data from limo crashes and specific reforms to enhance commonsense measures (seatbelts, airbags, inspections, etc.).

“When we step into a limo we turn over the driving to someone else, trusting that they will drive carefully, follow the rules of the road and deliver us safely to our destination. But that is not always the case,” the supervisor said.
