The firm is reminding folks that truck and car accidents peak during July and August. Furthermore, parents of new drivers should be aware that teen car accidents are especially prevalent during summer vacation. Parents are encouraged to sit down with their children and discuss the seriousness of reckless and impaired driving.
Citing National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, Alexandra Kane of Rizio, Hamilton and Kane, P.C. said "10 percent of all fatal car crashes in the U.S. are the result of distracted driving, which is completely preventable."
Kane also took note of another safety precaution that is often ignored: Using a seatbelt. "Just over 88 percent of drivers and passengers use their seat belts these days, which sounds like a high number, but there's no reason why we shouldn't get that up to 100 percent," she said. According to the NHTSA, the last year for which data is available shows there were 32,675 car crash fatalities, and 2.34 nonfatal injuries.
"Philadelphians are not immune to these statistics," Kane Said.
