A future without fatal traffic accidents

By the year 2050, the rate of fatal road traffic accidents in Pennsylvania could be reduced to zero. At a time when more than 100 daily deaths take place on the streets and highways of the United States, an initiative to reduce that statistic by 100 percent may sound overly ambitious, but that is what the Road to Zero Coalition intends to work on over the next few decades.

Mobile app exposes nationwide dangerous driving practices

Pennsylvania drivers use mobile phones on approximately 37 percent of their trips behind the wheel. This rate puts them around the national median, according to figures from Everdrive, a mobile app that tracks the safety practices of drivers. Everdrive used data from 300,000 of its users across the country to compile the report. The states with the most widespread phone usage while driving were mostly in the southern part of the country; Mississippi topped the list, followed by Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.

Soft tissue injuries can result from car accidents

For people in Pennsylvania and across the country, soft tissue injuries may be of particular concern in car accidents. These types of injuries involve non-bone body parts, including tendons, ligaments and muscles. Including tears, sprains, strains, soreness and other types of injuries, soft tissue damage can be a common after-effect of a car accident.

State governors have role to play in traffic safety

The chances of people getting in a car crash in Pennsylvania have worsened in recent years. A report published by the National Governors Association has taken on the problem of declining roadway safety. The report highlights the role of governors in addressing the problem.

NHTSA announces summit on drugged driving

The causes of the recent increase in accidents related to drugged driving in Pennsylvania and across the nation aren't clear. Many experts point to the expansion of marijuana legalization in some states. Others believe it may be related to the opioid epidemic. Regardless of the reason, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is issuing a call to action in hopes of limiting resulting fatalities.

Road rage in Pennsylvania

Most drivers in Pennsylvania have witnessed or been involved in a road rage incident at one time or another. Remaining calm in these situations can help maintain safety. However, this can be difficult to do when anger is added to mundane road frustrations. While it may be impossible to avoid enraged drivers altogether, there are ways motorists can lower their chances of becoming embroiled in potentially perilous situations.

How the NHTSA is warning against drunk driving

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has kicked off its annual Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign in the effort to keep motorists from driving drunk during the holiday season and beyond. The campaign consists of TV commercials, which are being aired in Pennsylvania and all over the U.S., and a 360-degree virtual reality web program that allows users to explore the scene of a drunk driving crash.

The decreasing rate of vehicle deaths

Though many are aware that vehicle deaths have decreased since the early 1980s, some may not be aware of how dramatic of a drop there has been. Few people in Pennsylvania are aware of the large disparity between vehicle models and deaths attributed to each model, or how much safer later model vehicles may be.
