State College Sees Decline In Traffic Fatalities
Good news for residents of State College, PA! New statistics show that the number of traffic-related fatalities has largely dropped in the past several years. Many of these numbers reflect a reduced amount of fatalities related to no seatbelt use, speeding, and alcohol consumption. However, some subsets of traffic-related fatalities actually increased. The number of deaths involving distracted driving increased by 57 in the past year, as well as deaths related to head-on or side-swipe crashes.
