Traffic deaths rise with economy

The stronger economy has encouraged motorists to drive more often and more dangerously. The risk of personal injury and dying in a car accident in a late model car has risen slightly according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The overall fatality rate involving 2014 models is 30 per one million registered vehicle years. This is an increase from 28 for 2011 models. This latest study is based upon car crash fatalities that occurred from 2012-2015. In its last study, however, IIHS found that the overall rate dropped by almost a third over a three-year period. This was attributed to improved vehicle designs and safety technology.

The best way to handle road rage

Now that summer is here, there are more vehicles and construction zones on the road. This means more traffic, accidents, tourists and teen drivers. Being stuck behind a long line of slow-moving cars and dealing with reckless or distracted drivers are enough to make anyone more than irritated.

New technology may fight distracted driving

Police in New York may be the first to use new technology to fight danger posed by other relatively new technology. Under a pending bill in that state, the police could use a Textalyzer, which allows testing a cellphone to determine whether the driver used it immediately before a car crash. Someday, it may be used in personal injury cases.
