Pennsylvania U.S. Senator John Fetterman says the number of fatal pedestrian/car collisions in Pennsylvania is rising because of dangerous roads. He’s proposing a five-billion-dollar overhaul of the country’s road safety program to improve them. The freshman Democratic Senator’s bill would cut in half the amount of funding for planning grants and divert those to make more cash available for actual construction. The senator says many communities already have plans in place to improve roads and just need federal money to get to work. Car/pedestrian accidents are reportedly at a 40-year high in the commonwealth, killing more than 14-hundred people since 2010.
