U.S. automakers are shifting emphasis from sedans to SUVs and crossover models as more customers prefer larger vehicles.
Yes, speeding. Speeding is a factor in about 30% of all traffic fatalities. That’s almost as high as alcohol related fatal crashes. It’s the number-two cause of all traffic fatalities according to the NHTSA.
There are about 12,000 fatal speeding crashes each year. Compare that to almost 17,000 fatal crashes involving a drunk driver. Speeding is almost as dangerous as drunk driving. Most people equate holiday accidents with drunk driving, not speeding.
However, the deadliest day of the year for speeding crashes that result in a fatality is New Year's Day, followed by Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas. But, when you factor in the speeding, you can see it makes sense because lots of people are in a hurry to get home for a holiday. Add to that the fact most people are only concerned about drunk drivers and you can see the roads can be a pretty dangerous place at times, especially around any holiday.
