Surge in traffic deaths outpaces increase in travel

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 January 2017
The Associated Press reports that Traffic deaths surged about 8 percent in the first nine months of last year, continuing an alarming upward spiral that began in late 2014, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The sharp increase comes at the same time Americans are putting more miles on the road than ever, the government said. Experts believe the increased travel is mostly a result of an improved economy and low gas prices.
