NHTSA reports on 2018 traffic fatalities

Florida drivers may be safer on the roads than in some previous years, but pedestrians may be at a greater risk. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2018, fatalities from motor vehicle accidents dropped for the second year in a row, and estimates from the first half of 2019 show the trend is continuing.

Distracted driving poses a significant threat to safety on the Florida roadways. A growing number of serious car accidents are linked to drivers paying attention to their mobile phones, tablets or other devices while operating a vehicle. One study released for Teen Driver Safety Week draws particular attention to the prevalence of teen distracted drivers.

The differences are slight, and the additional coverage may not cost much, assuming one does not take out a separate policy, but a given agreement may come with a number of confusing terms.

How overall workplace quality determines worker health and safety

Many studies have taken these factors individually, but none has analyzed them all together. A study from the University of Washington, though, has striven to correct the simplistic view of worker health that has come about.
