By: TechRaduTechRaduThe US has the worst traffic safety record in the world, and the results are pretty striking.
According to data collected by the American Automobile Association, in the past five years the number of accidents caused by driver error has increased by more than 4,000 per year, and fatalities by more to 1,811 per year.
In a report for the American Society of Civil Engineers, the group’s safety standards are considered the best in the OECD and ranked 10th among OECD countries.
The report found that the number and type of road conditions and other factors affect accidents, as well as fatalities, injuries and property damage.
“We have a lot of roadways, and we’ve got a lot going on in terms of roadway infrastructure,” says Michael Smith, an engineer at the US Department of Transportation, who oversaw the report.
“But when we talk about traffic, we talk specifically about accidents and fatalities.
So I would argue that in a lot, if not most, cases, the US traffic safety picture is a lot worse than it needs to be.”
The US is the only OECD country that does not have a national traffic safety board.
The government is a separate body for individual states, and it is not mandated to carry out any traffic safety work.
But Smith says the US is among the most traffic-challenged nations in the region, with more than 80% of Americans living in areas where road conditions are poor, or have no road infrastructure.
The lack of infrastructure means that many of these roads are poorly maintained, with some even leading to accidents.
The US Department is working to fix the problem, but the results could be long overdue.
The problem is most acute in states that have already suffered the toll of years of heavy truck traffic, with accidents increasing by more in the last decade than in the preceding one.
In addition, in some areas, truck traffic has doubled or tripled in the previous 20 years, making it more difficult for road crews to repair and maintain these roads.
Smith and his team, which includes the US Transportation Department and the US Federal Highway Administration, have been trying to find solutions to these issues for years.
But their efforts have often been stymied by the reluctance of states to fund the work.
According to Smith, the result of this is that US states have a higher number of accident-related fatalities than any other country.
In recent years, some states have tried to cut down on truck traffic by reducing speed limits, but they have been met with resistance from truck drivers.
Smith says it is likely that the problems are not being solved by any single factor, but rather by the combination of factors.
“What’s really happening is the trucking industry is very, very large, and its driven by a lot more people,” he says.
“If you cut down a bit on speed limits you’re going to see a lot less truck traffic and a lot fewer accidents.”
While states have taken measures to address truck traffic problems, Smith and his colleagues say there is no easy solution to the issue.
“There is no one silver bullet, and there is absolutely no one solution,” Smith says.
“When we talk to the truckers, they say, ‘Well, if I can reduce the speed, then the problem’s solved,'” he says, noting that it is often hard for drivers to understand how they can make the most of their trucking job.
The biggest challenge in reducing truck traffic is a lack of adequate infrastructure.
The US Department estimates that there are approximately 12 million trucks per day in the country, and these cars are among the fastest-moving vehicles on the road.
The vehicles that drive these roads, which have a much higher top speed, are more prone to accidents, particularly if they come to a stop and cause damage.
In 2013, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that there were 5,816 traffic-related deaths on the nation’s highways, with a total of 2,852 fatalities.
In total, there were 1,945 traffic-vehicle fatalities in 2013.
As a result, the average driver has more than six accidents a day, and many of the accidents are caused by other drivers.
The National Safety Council of Texas estimates that the average number of collisions per month in Texas is around 30,000.
In the same year, the city of Dallas, which has one of the nation\’s largest populations of truckers and drivers, has a population of approximately 5,000, and has seen the number increase by almost 50% since 2005.
The city of Austin, which is also among the top five worst-in-the-world for truck traffic accidents, had a population that was just over 4,500 in 2013, but now has more trucks on the roads than any of the cities in the United States.
In many states, the number that drivers are involved in accidents has increased, too. According
