Study Reveals Fewer Drivers Running Red Lights And Driving Impaired

Many drivers didn’t notice that the percentage of drivers using alcohol, consuming cannabis or driving when they were so tired it was hard to keep their eyes open declined by almost 32% between 2018 and 2020. Many of these drivers also failed to note that speeding, distracted driving and driving aggressively actually increased according to the AAA Foundation’s annual Traffic Safety Culture Index (TSCI). The TSCI surveys drivers about the unsafe behaviors they’ve engaged in at least once over the past 30 days. Last year’s survey was conducted with more than 2,800 licensed drivers aged 16 or older.

AAA’s most recent traffic safety study reported that even though someone important to them would disapprove of their using a cell phone to type, text, read or make a call while driving, many did so anyway. The AAA Foundation indicates distracted driving behavior is becoming more socially acceptable, despite the inherent risks.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates show 38,680 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in the U.S. in 2020. The 2020 results show more than a 7% increase compared with 2019, despite Americans driving 13.2% fewer miles. The decrease in miles driven is based largely on pandemic related behavior. In 2020 the primary behaviors that lead to fatal crashes were impaired driving, speeding and failure to wear a seatbelt, according to NHTSA. The agency estimates that during the first three months of 2021, 8,730 people have died in motor vehicle traffic crashes.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.

My daughter was involved in an automobile accident in an intersection on her 17th birthday. The other person said it was her fault and my daughter said her light was green. I am not the sort of person who sues but my insurance
