purpose: present study scrutinized the effect that state traffic safety rules have on non - motorist disastrous events rates and ratios. Methodology: Data obtained from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) were analyzed by a pooled time series cross - sectional model using permanent impacts regression for all 50 states during 1999 to 2009. Two dependent variables were employed in different models measuring annual state non- motorist disastrous events per million populations and the natural log of state non - motorist disastrous events. Independent variables measuring traffic policies included state spending for public roads law enforcement and safety per capita; driver mobile use Euless ; graduated driver license regulations; regulations on driver blood alcohol concentration; motorcycle helmet regulations; and seat belt regulations. All other control variables encompassed percent of all vehicle miles travelled that are urban and mean per capita alcohol consumption annually. Results: Non-motorist traffic safety was positively influenced by state highway law enforcement and safety spending per capita, with a reduced in non -motorist fatalities happen with multiplied spending. Alcohol Precipitate consumption also influenced non - motorist fatalities, with higher non-motorist disastrous events taking place with higher per capita alcohol consumption. Other traffic safety covariates did not happen to have a significant effect on non -motorist fatality rates in the models. Conclusion: This research suggests that heightened expenditures on state highway and traffic safety and the commencement as well as expansion of programs targeted at curbing both driver and non-motorist intoxication area starting point for the execution of traffic safety guidelines that decrease risks for non-motorists
