Traffic fatalities have steeply increased since 2014

Deaths caused by vehicle accidents have increased remarkably since 2014, according to a report by the National Safety Council. New York drivers should be aware of what these reports mean for road safety. These estimates released by the National Safety Council indicate that traffic deaths have increased by 6 percent since 2015 and 14 percent since 2014. Car accidents in 2016 cost around $432.5 billion, and this figure includes injuries, deaths and property damage. The advocacy group is calling for stricter regulations as a result.

Organization ranks states on traffic safety laws

According to a study by Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, New York is somewhere the middle among states regarding traffic safety laws. The organization examined traffic laws throughout the country and found 376 laws that it said should be adopted by all states. Those laws dealt with safety issues involving seat belt use, motorcycle helmet use, texting and driving, teen driving, child safety and impaired driving among other topics.
