Online PR News – 23-May-2012 – Philadelphia, PA – Every year, Americans drive hundreds of millions of miles on public roadways. Unfortunately, this heavy reliance on automotive transportation can place individuals at risk of suffering serious injuries in an accident. In fact, car accidents on the highway are one of the primary causes of preventable death in the United States. Nevertheless, in recent years, a significant reversal of this trend has begun to occur.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, traffic deaths in the United States have decreased by as much as 25% since 2005 alone. Researchers point to a number of different factors which may explain this promising decline, including improvements in the safety technology available in cars and law enforcement efforts aimed at reducing the numbers of drunk drivers on the road. In light of these factors, continued decreases in the number of fatalities resulting from traffic accidents are expected.
In spite of these hopeful findings, far too many Americans suffer serious injuries or the loss of a loved one every year because of automobile accidents.
