No one wants to think about it, but on average there are more than 6 million car accidents on American roads every year. There are some statistics that you need to know that may be eye openers. More than 3 million people get injured due to car accidents, with more than 2 million of these injuries deemed to be life-alternating.
About 40% of car accident fatalities occur because of a drunken driver. About 30% of the car accident fatalities in this nation are attributed to driving above the speed limits. Which, let’s face it, most of us are guilty as charged. And a full 3rd of car accidents are simply attributed to reckless driving. Here is a sobering statistic, in the age group 1-30 car accidents are the leading cause of death!
