Fatal car accidents once again on the rise

Recent statistics released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration do not paint a positive picture for Florida drivers. The NHTSA report indicates that more than 37,000 people were killed in road traffic accidents across the United States in 2016. This represents a 5.6 percent year-on-year increase, and it is the highest number of fatal crashes on record since 2007.

Car size is a factor in injury and crash severity

Florida motorists who drive smaller cars likely enjoy the fuel economy that they offer. Unfortunately, small cars fare much worse when they are involved in collisions than do larger vehicles. People who are in the market for a new vehicle might want to take these risks into consideration before they make purchasing decisions.
