Connecticut Could Do More To Reduce Traffic Fatalities, Report Says

The “Welcome to Connecticut” sign at the beginning of West Putnam Avenue, in the Byram section of Greenwich, bears the name of the new governor, Dannel P. Malloy of Stamford, on his first day in office, Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011.

Connecticut auto accident deaths have increased over the last decade hitting a peak in 2016 with 311 fatalities, according to the UConn Crash Data Depository. This follows a national upward trend.

A new study by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety estimates $4.9 billion in economic costs from Connecticut auto accidents and says the state could do more.

The rise is attributed to the rapid increase in technology usage with teen drivers, pedestrians, and automobile technology.
