How to safely share Connecticut roads with large trucks

Collisions involving large commercial trucks and smaller cars, trucks and SUVs are all too common in Connecticut, and throughout the U.S. Often, it is the occupants of the smaller automobiles who suffer the potentially devastating consequences of such wrecks. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports 137 of the 248 people that died as a result of Connecticut truck accidents in 2014 were occupants in passenger vehicles. Although not all such collisions can be avoided, there are things drivers can do to safely share the road with large trucks.

New technology could reduce incidents of drunk driving

New technology could provide one way to significantly decrease the number of people who drive while under the influence of alcohol in Connecticut. Despite increased awareness, drunk driving still kills 27 Americans every day. Since the drunk driving awareness organization Mothers Against Drunk Driving was founded, there has been a 50 percent decrease in the number of deaths. However, there remains work to be done to reduce the number of drunk driving incidents, which is around 300,000 thousand per day or 121 million per year.
