The surprising reason for increased traffic fatalities

The National Safety Council compiles all kinds of nationwide statistics about traffic accidents, and is therefore able to spot trends. For example, the NSC reported that in the first half of 2015, the number of serious injuries resulting from car crashes increased 30 percent over the same period in 2014. The number of deaths-about 19,000-represented a 14 percent increase. This upward trend in both injuries and fatalities includes causes such as drunk driving, distracted driving and lack of seatbelt use. However, there is another reason for car crashes.

How risky are construction zones to drivers?

If you have been driving on Colorado's highways, you have no doubt seen the signs warning you about construction zones and traffic. They are ubiquitous, and very necessary, because workers are often injured when motorists lose control or lose track of where individuals working on the road are standing in relation to traffic lanes. More often, though, construction zone accidents involve two or more vehicles and do not involve workers, so you need to have a better understanding of those risks and how to be vigilant and defensive when driving in construction zones.
