Study associates opioids with some fatal two-car crashes

The opioid epidemic has had its impact on car crash numbers in Ohio and across the U.S. Whereas 2% of crash initiators in 1993 tested positive for opioids, that percentage went up to 7.1% in 2016. Now, a study published in JAMA Network Open has associated opioid use with a fair number of fatal two-car collisions.

Drivers use phones for more than talking

A study found that drivers in Ohio are using their phones differently in 2018 than they were in 2014. The study tracked the behaviors of drivers at red lights at four different locations in Virginia. A report recently released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, revealed the survey's findings. One of the key takeaways was that drivers were 57% more likely to use a phone to perform tasks other than making calls.

Those other drivers are daydreaming, and it's very dangerous

When you drive, do you glance over at the people in the cars around you to see what they're doing behind the wheel? If you do, it can be frightening. You see people trying to eat lunch on the way to school, trying to watch videos on their phones in rush hour traffic, or trying to send meaningless text messages to everyone in their phone -- and a whole lot more.
