Fatalities caused by red-light runners are on the rise

According to a recent report from AAA, drivers running red lights and causing fatal accidents has reached a 10-year high. From 2012 to 2017, the rate of collisions caused by drivers who ran red lights increased 28%. In almost half the cases that involved a fatality, the people killed were either drivers or passengers in cars hit by red-light violators. Approximately one-third of the victims were the drivers who ran the light.

Marijuana auto accidents increase in Colorado

According to a recent report in the Denver Post, an uptick of marijuana involved auto fatalities have caused concern for many state officials in Colorado.

Why do buses and trains not have seatbelts?

Bus and train accidents are not in the news very often. They are more rare than accidents involving passenger cars. But when these kinds of accidents do happen, they can be completely devastating. One of the reasons for that devastation is the lack of standard safety features that are commonly seen in cars and planes. These features include seat belts in both planes and cars, and the smaller windows and latching, overhead storage bins that are found in airplanes.

Are speed limits too high?

Speed limits have been increasing in some rural areas, where there are not really any places to stop and a low number of residences, businesses, or cross-streets that could mean problems. However, these higher speed limits are still causing more fatalities, according to a new study. The number of additional deaths due to a higher speed limit is estimated to be around 37,000 over the last 25 years. That might not seem like much, but the study also shows that fatality rates go up 8.5 percent for every five miles per hour the speed limit rises.
