This year is on it’s 10th month already and we were trying to make some calculations already on how much did rise the traffic fatalities. Last year has marked the highest rise in traffic fatalities since 1996, and of course we were hoping that this year things are going to change for the best.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed the results, and once again they are too high. Road deaths in the US rose 10.4 percent in the first six months of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. The data, which has not been finalized, reveals that an estimated 17,775 people died in motor vehicle accidents in the first half of this year. Over the same period in 2015, there were 16,100 reported fatalities.
