The State of Wisconsin is running a serious ad blitz on TV and radio. The ads talk about the number of deaths and serious injuries that occur daily because of car accidents. In short the ads talk about cell phones, drinking and not paying attention as bad driving habits that we all can work on. If we can change our habits there won’t be as many injuries and serious car accidents in Wisconsin.
Their website ZeroInWisconsin.gov says:
Some deaths were caused by speeding while others were a result of drunk driving, or not wearing a seat belt. Tragically, these deaths affect many lives and cause great pain to thousands of people throughout the state. Fortunately, you can help change that number.
There is a bunch of statistics on the page too. I think I’ve already talked about the death totals from car accidents before.
In short, this is a good time to assess your driving habits and make a New Year’s Resolution to drive more responsibly. It sounds simple but this is good advice:
By staying within the speed limit, being sober behind the wheel, and buckling up, you can do simple things that can turn more than 500 annual deaths into zero.
