NSC notes positive trends in 2019 roadway fatality estimates

The National Safety Council estimates that there were 38,800 traffic fatalities in Montana and across the U.S. in 2019: a 2% decline from 2018 and a 4% decline from 2017. This is a positive trend after the spike in fatalities that 2015 and 2016 experienced. Overall, of course, road safety has vastly improved since the 1970s, but there are still areas of concern that the NSC has pointed out.

Strategies for avoiding distracted driving

A study of drivers between the ages of 18 to 24 conducted by The Zebra found that 39% of respondents admitted to texting while driving.
