New GHSA study on drugs and fatal car crashes

The Governors Highway Safety Association has conducted a study on drug use and its connection to fatal car crashes in 2016. Drivers in California may not be surprised to hear that the percentage of fatally injured drivers with drugs in their system has increased from 28 percent in 2006 to 44 percent in 2016. The drug most frequently found was marijuana at 38 percent, followed by opioids at 16 percent and a combination of the two at 4 percent.

Distracted driving leads to large number of injuries

People taking the wheel in California may be concerned about the danger to roadway safety posed by distracted driving. While the ubiquity of the smartphone is often associated with the increase in car accidents and dangerous behavior associated with driving while distracted, it is not the only form of diversion drivers face that keep their eyes and mind away from the road. From putting on makeup to eating to fiddling with a touchscreen entertainment system, distracted driving is easy to fall into, and the consequences can be devastating. In 2015 alone, 3,477 people lost their lives due to distracted driving.

The range of soft tissue injuries

One of the most frequent injuries that car accident victims face is soft tissue damage. Soft tissue includes muscles, ligaments and tendons, all of which can be strained, sprained and even torn through any sudden, uncontrolled movement. Drivers in California will want to know the symptoms of soft tissue injuries.
