If these projections are realized, this will indicate the second largest increase in fatalities since NHTSA first started recording traffic fatalities in 1975. The largest increase in fatalities was in the first quarter of 1979 with a 15.3% in the number of traffic related deaths.
The 2012 increase in fatalities is following a historic downtrend in traffic fatalities over the past few years.
Were the increased fatalities due to texting while driving? Long stretches of road inviting drivers to speed? Younger, less experienced drivers? Tired driving?
