Date:11/19/2008

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At a time when tens of thousands of Americans are injured or die on our nation's roadways each year, Oregon and Washington state received top scores in a new roadway safety scorecard released today by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA). Arkansas, North Dakota and South Dakota received the lowest scores. The report, 2008 ENA National Scorecard on State Roadway Laws: A Blueprint for Injury Prevention, examines roadway safety laws in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and scores each based on 13 criteria.

States received one point for each type of legislation. Oregon and Washington were the only states to receive the best possible score of 13. Arkansas scored only three points, and North Dakota and South Dakota scored only four points each.

"Every year, there are more than 40,000 deaths on our nation's roadways," said ENA President Denise King, RN, MSN, CEN. "We can reduce those numbers and we know how. When it comes to injury prevention, the public is in the driver's seat. We must call on our policy makers to pass laws that are proven to reduce injuries and fatalities.
