Evidences that young people are the highest risky drivers causing highway deaths and fatalities had made the Congress to pass the Legislation (S 378) to restrict young people driving on the road. The focus of the legislation is how to reduce the alcohol use of young people that is suspected to be one of the most significant factors causes the highway deaths and fatalities. This paper, using the time series and panel data approach shows that it is more efficient to focus the legislation for all people in reducing the highway death and fatality rate. Further, the appropriate policy that should be passed by the Congress is how to limit the speed of vehicles on the road. Length: 49 pages
