Traffic Fatalities on the Rise in U.S., Arkansas, in part, because of Distracted Driving

Published on Feb 16, 2017 at 3:10 pm in Car Wrecks, Distracted Driving.

Yesterday, the National Safety Council estimated that as many as 40,000 people died in car crashes in 2016.  This estimate represents a 6% increase over 2015 and a 14% increase over 2014.

What’s causing the significant increase in fatalities?  People are driving more miles and more people are driving distracted.

Arkansas State Police report a similar increase in car crash fatalities between 2014 and 2016.
