Car Accident Fatalities Highest Since 2007
January 5, 2016
Highways across the United States are seeing an increase of cars due to
lower gas prices and the fact that our economy is on the mend. With crowded
roads, however, there has also been an increase in the number of
auto accidents across the country. The number of fatalities related to car collisions
will unfortunately hit a high of over 40,000 incidents in 2015, something
that has not happened since 2007 according to the National Safety Council (NSC).
What is the major cause of these accidents?
Texting while driving is still considered to be one of the largest contributing factors behind
these types of accidents. With the steady increase in
distracted driving, as people are becoming more and more reliant on their cell phones for
GPS, texting, calling, music, and other activities, the NSC estimates
that 25% of all car accidents are directly related to cellphone use.
