We have also been able to share our linked data with local traffic safety organizations for public service announcements and to support Safe Community projects. Yet, some of Utah CODES’s greatest successes have occurred at the legislative level.

Our direct participation with the legislature began with the Legislative Task Force on Traffic Safety in 1998 and culminated with the passage of Senate Bill 48, Passenger Limitations for Young Drivers in 2001.
