Top Causes of Car Wrecks in the US

Although automobile manufactures are always coming out with new and improved safety features, car accidents remain a leading cause of death and injury in the United States.
 
According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic-Safety Administration), the amount of traffic accidents has slowly decreased in Texas, but on average there are about still about 3,300 fatalities a year in the Lone Star State alone. Surprisingly, at least 10% of those accidents involve drivers who are 16-20 years of age.
 

 The main causes of most automobile accidents are drunk or distracted drivers. Despite all the public service announcements and growing awareness of the dangers of using cellular phones while driving, recent surveys show that most drivers are willing to risk others' lives and their own to answer a call or text while behind the wheel. Texting increases the risk of having a car crash by a whopping 23%! For more information about distracted driving visit www.Distraction.gov.
 
The highest price we pay for these car crashes is the loss of human lives, but there are many non-fatal accidents that also incur huge costs. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) statistics for 2010 show that the cost of medical and productivity losses associated with car crashes was over $99 billion, or $500 per licensed driver in the US.
