A national group that pushes for more traffic safety laws says Ohio is among 31 states getting a “caution” or “yellow” rating in its latest annual report.
But Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety says Ohio has only passed seven of 15 laws it considers necessary. President Jackie Gillan said Ohio needs a primary seat belt law and a law requiring helmets for all motorcycle riders, among others.
A federal grand jury has now indicted the Green Township man accused of planning an attack on the U.S. Capitol. Chris Cornell faces charges of attempting to kill officers and employees of the United States, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, and solicitation to commit violence.
Cornell has a hearing Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in federal court.
Court documents say he planned to build, plant and detonate pipe bombs at and near the Capitol and then use firearms to shoot and kill employees and officers there.
