Montgomery County Council is set to vote today on the passing of the Safe Streets Act. The act would prohibit drivers of a motor vehicle from making a right turn on red at certain intersections.
The bill is being pushed in an effort to provide more access to pedestrians following a rise in the number of serious and fatal crashes. The legislation would also require a performance review if a student going to or from school is involved in an accident within the county’s school zone. The bill was introduced by Evan Glass, the president of the Montgomery County Council.
