According to a recent report from the National Safety Council, highway fatalities in California are on the rise. In fact, the rate of traffic deaths in the state is increasing faster than the national average.
Part of the reason for the uptick is the improved economy, as people are once again traveling. Any time there are more people on the roads, the accident rates rise.
Drivers impaired by prescription drugs and those distracted by cellphones also affect the highway fatality rates in California. Even though California has always been very proactive about initiating highway safety measures, it seems the message isn’t getting through to all of the right people.
