Upward Trend in Highway Fatalities Draws Concern in Delaware

July 30, 2015

AAA Mid-Atlantic says Delaware drivers need to slow down and pay better attention when behind the wheel.

Alarmed by an upward trend in road deaths this year, the motor club says too many drivers are engaging in unsafe behavior, including running red lights, speeding, driving when tired, and texting and talking on their cellphones.

AAA says the Delaware Office of Highway Safety reported an above-average number of fatalities over the past three months, compared to the five-year average. Statewide, there were 34 fatalities between May and July, and 62 persons have been killed in crashes this year.

AAA says too many drivers report engaging in dangerous behavior when driving even though they say such behavior is unacceptable.
