We suffer from “Summer Amnesia.” Many have forgotten what adjustments are needed for safe summer driving. NHTSA data- 2019-20 40.1 Billion miles driven reduction; 7% increase in fatal crash deaths. Increase in pedestrians, motorcyclists and young drivers killed. Many autopsies reveal concomitant use of opiods, alcohol &/or marijuana Use of cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana surging according to national survey in WSJ (5/9). About half of those killed not wearing seat belts. Not-so-smart phones major problem, Too may of us have become addicted to cell phones. Crash every 8 seconds; death every 15 minutes.
Michigan more crash deaths than New York.
By design, we are being held captive by Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Twitter, etc.
We need to throw off these shackles and go back to traditional forms of communication like face-to-face discussions. Can you drive without using the phone? Take the “NO TEXTING” pledge on this website. MI Police say texting worst problem related to crashes.
