The National Safety Council (NCS) has collected some preliminary data that shows that deaths from motor vehicle accidents are down to16,180 during the first half of 2014. When compared to the 16,860 fatalities in the first half of 2013, the fatalities in the first half of 2014 are 4% lower than those in 2013. Deborah Hersman, NSC’s president and CEO said that studies show that 90% of the accidents are due to driver error, distracted driving, alcohol use and speeding. “Although it’s encouraging to see a decrease in fatalities, the unfortunate fact remains that many of these crashes could have been prevented.” You can find out more by clicking here.
