Higher speed limits and fatalities

According to a 2016 study from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, higher speed limits over the last 20 years have resulted in 33,000 deaths in Connecticut and the rest of the country. The report, which examined accidents occurring between 1993 and 2013, found increased speed limits led to 1,900 deaths in 2013, even as frontal airbags saved close to the same number of lives during the same year.

Car accident deaths continue to rise despite safety advances

Improving economic conditions and falling fuel prices have led to increased traffic congestion in Connecticut and other U.S. states, and more cars, trucks and SUVs on the nation's roads means more traffic accidents and traffic accident fatalities. Road deaths increased by an alarming 7 percent in 2015 after several years of steady falls, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration believes that 2016 was an even more deadly year for motorists.
