NHTSA report estimates fewer traffic deaths in 2018

Arizona residents should know that 2015 and 2016 saw a spike in the number of motor vehicle crash fatalities: the highest, in fact, since the 1960s. It is a good thing, then, that 2017 and 2018 have both seen a decline in fatalities, slight though they may be. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 37,133 roadway fatalities in 2017: a 2% decrease from 2016. Now, it has predicted a similar dip in its 2018 preliminary report.

Riding in the back may not be as safe as people think

Historically, the back of a car has been seen as safer than the front of a car to ride in. However, advances in car safety technology have largely focused on those who sit in the front. This is partially because it is easier to design features when those who sit in the driver and passenger seat are typically adults. Conversely, those who sit in the back may be adults or children.

How to know if drowsy driving affects you

A lot of recent state driving campaigns have focused on the dangers of driving while intoxicated or high. However, there is another major danger on the roadways that does not get as much attention. Every day, hundreds of Arizona drivers operate vehicles while drowsy, and they pose a significant threat to other drivers and pedestrians.
