Iowa authorities predict that this year’s number of deadly road accidents will increase from 2015’s, an article of The Des Moines Register reported on June 27.
According to the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT), 170 people in the state died in vehicular accidents from January to June this year. This year’s record exceeded the five-year average of 140 for the same time period. The DOT said the number of fatalities early this year are likely caused by a combination of distracted or impaired driving, speeding, and not wearing seat belts. Although an increase in miles traveled is also to blame, a state patrol officer noted that many of the fatal accidents were single-vehicle crashes caused by speeding. The officer advised motorists in Iowa to wear seat belts, slow down, and avoid driving while intoxicated or distracted.
