What is causing a big jump in traffic deaths in 2012?
Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Traffic accident fatalities for the first quarter of 2012 are way up compared to 2011 – nearly 13.5%. That is approximately 7,630 people dead from as a result of motor vehicle crashes in the just first three months of the year.  The statistic that I found to be shocking?  More people  have died on U.S. roads in three months than U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq and Afghanistan in the last decade.

Why the sudden spike in car accident deaths, after years of steady decline?

There is one bright spot for Oregonians: traffic fatalities here in Oregon seem to be down slightly or consistent with 2011 levels, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.
