We all travel the roads of our community on a regular basis, whether as drivers or passengers in private vehicles or on public transportation. As vehicle safety technology improved over the years, most observers expected to see a decrease in injuries and fatalities on our roads. Unfortunately, the opposite has occurred. According to the National Safety Council, there has been a fourteen percent increase in traffic fatalities in the past two years. This statistic alone is shocking, but it is even more disturbing when you realize that this is the first increase in consecutive years since the 1960s.
