Traffic Fatalities on the Rise in 2016

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Defensive Driving Online, news

New data from the National Safety Council found that “approximately 19,100 people were killed in crashes on U.S. roads during the first six months of the year, a 9 percent increase over the same period in 2015.”

The reasons for this increase varies from more people on the roads because of cheaper gas prices to the increase of teens texting and using social media while driving.
