* Improve federal standards for roadway signs and road markings to accommodate the vision needs of an older population. The effect will be signs and road markings that are more visible for all.
“Rep. Altmire’s vision in understanding the needs of older Americans is truly inspirational,” said Wentz. “H.R. 3355 is a large step in the right direction in making our friends, parents, and grandparents as safe as possible on the road. On behalf of ATSSA, I commend Rep. Altmire for his leadership and commitment to America’s older citizens.”
