Human error remains a thorny road safety issue

The number of road users killed in motor vehicle accidents in Kentucky and around the country increased alarmingly in 2015 and 2016. Both government agencies and road safety groups say that human error is largely to blame. While automobile safety features and systems have improved significantly in recent years and traffic planners have worked to get rid of accident black spots, there are still approximately 6 million road crashes each year in the United States.

Study finds that roundabouts greatly reduce road deaths

The number of Kentucky residents killed in automobile accidents each year could be significantly reduced if conventional intersections were replaced with roundabouts, according to a recently published study. Researchers from the Minnesota Department of Transportation compared the number of fatal and property accidents that took place at 144 junctions in the state both before and after roundabouts were built, and they found that replacing stop signs and traffic lights with traffic circles reduced fatalities by an overwhelming 86 percent.

Preparing for winter driving

Since auto accidents are more frequent in the winter, drivers in Kentucky should understand what they can do to stay safe on the roads. The first thing to consider is the effect of ice and snow on vehicle steering and braking. Drivers should account for increased braking distance and a greater chance of losing control of one's vehicle.
