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.

There is always a risk on the road. Driving around Boulder one faces a wide range of hazards: roadwork, distracted drivers and the upcoming winter.

Can the phone companies prevent distracted driving?

There are few debates as heated and complex as weighting social responsibility versus individual freedom. Just because something can be controlled, does that mean it should be?

How sleep deprivation can impair driving

In the last several years, sleep deprivation has led to approximately 55,000 car accidents per year throughout the nation, resulting in an average of nearly 1,500 vehicle-related deaths and 40,000 injuries, according to reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Symptoms and treatment of whiplash

Individuals who have been involved in a car accident in Colorado may have suffered from a condition known as whiplash, which is a generic term for injury caused by a sudden jot that affects a person's neck. The injury is also commonly associated with sports, work and fall injuries.

Drunk driving causes thousands of deaths each year

Drunk driving refers to anyone who drives with a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit. California has a legal limit for both drivers above and below the legal drinking age. The BAC of an individual varies based on the height and weight of that person and how quickly his or her body metabolizes the alcohol. A person who drives drunk has problems concentrating on the road and paying attention to other vehicles.
