National Governors Association publishes road safety report

Highways across New York and the rest of America are dangerous places. The situation has become worse rather than better in recent years, according to statistics. With U.S. traffic fatalities on the rise, the National Governors Association has published a report that focuses on the role of governors in coordinating efforts to increase road safety.

Marijuana celebration linked to car accident deaths

New York has not yet legalized the consumption of marijuana for recreational use, and lawmakers in the Empire State may study data coming out of states like Washington and California closely when the time comes to consider such legislation.

How to prevent driving distractions

Many safety experts blame distracted drivers for the rise in traffic fatalities. Distractions can include making adjustments in the car such as temperature control as well as any actions that lead to drivers looking away from the road.
