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 may be partially explained by more Americans on the roads due to the economic recovery, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates released Friday. The sharp increase comes as drivers are putting more miles on the road than ever, the government said. But the rise in deaths is outpacing the increase in travel.
