Study: Traffic Deaths Rise in 2012
After years of decline, the number of fatalities attributed to traffic accidents are on the upswing.
FOX News Radio’s Kerin McCue has the statistics:
The National Safety Council reports that the number of traffic deaths surged 5% last year, ending a seven-year decline that had pushed those numbers to their lowest levels in six decades. They estimate that 36,200 people were killed in car wrecks last year; compare that to 34,600 in 2011. Plus, crash injuries requiring medical care jumped 5% in 2012 to nearly four million.
They report than an improving economy plus a mild winter could help explain those higher numbers.
