Every year there are six million car accidents across the U.S. Six million! It seems shocking, but with the annual increase in population, there’s going to be a greater amount of cars on the road. More people driving, more accidents.
Luckily, the number of accident fatalities has been on the decline since 1970, thanks to safer cars and advancing technology. On another note, distracted driving – using cell phones, texting – has contributed to slight jump in car accident fatalities from 2011 to 2012.
Let’s all make the roads safer for everyone, be as careful as possible and don’t drive distracted.
