NORWALK -

A new report says Connecticut still has some work to do when it comes to preventing highway deaths.

According to a report from the non-profit "Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety," the group graded the state as "Yellow" on its scale.

The grade means the state needs improvement, especially in the areas of motorcycle helmet requirements, tougher teen driving laws and seat belts for all passengers.
