Increase in Car Accidents During First Half of 2016 and Rising

The number of deaths related to traffic incidents has steadily risen during the first half of 2016. In fact, in the first six months of this year, traffic fatalities are up nine percent compared to the same time period last year. The National Safety Council announced that from January to June, over 19,000 people have been killed and over 2 million injured on U.S. roads. That puts 2016 on the path to breaking historical records for the most driving deaths, ever.

Florida has experienced one of the most dramatic increases in driving miles clocked on the road. It stands to reason that the more people drive, the more likely accidents occur.

As a personal injury law firm dealing in all forms of motor vehicle accidents, particularly car crashes, we understand that this influx in potential incidents should be accompanied by a rise in safety regulations and actions. Deborah A.P. Hersman, NSC CEO, echoed that it is our contentment that is killing us. She urged that “Americans should demand change to prioritize safety actions and protect ourselves from one of the leading causes of death.”

Until more laws are put into place that protect the rights and lives of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians, the most important commitment you can make is safe and defensive driving. Use caution and never taking the privilege of driving as a light liberty.
