Traffic Deaths Increase in Ohio - Why?
In 2019, Ohio saw an increase in traffic fatalities. Ohio State Highway Patrol data shows an increase from 2018. Why?
New cars are arguably safer than every before. Are these accidents mostly from older cars that do not have the extra safety features?
There are many contributing factors when trying to understand why accidents occur. Many times it is not one thing but a combination of unique circumstances.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol database, approx. 33% of the deaths were the result of not wearing seat belts and or speeding.
Although vehicles seem to be getting safer each year it is ultimately up to the individual driver to ensure safety. The driver is responsible for their own safety.
However, even when you are the safest driver on the road, it is possible that an accident can happen. The fact is, you simply can't prevent some accidents. Unseen road conditions such as ice can be a serious problem. No matter how safe your vehicle may be or how great your tires are on snow and ice, at times ice on the road will defeat the best products man can build.
Ohio ranked 4th in the top five states with the most deaths due to icy road conditions with 172 deaths. This is tragic.
