Americans are driving less during the pandemic; however, car crash deaths are on the rise. According to figures from the National Safety Council (NSC), cars killed 42,060 people in 2020, which was up from 39,107 in 2019.
Experts say with fewer cars on the road during the pandemic, traffic has decreased. However, this has emboldened more people to drive at dangerously high speeds compared to past years. There are also more cases of people driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, which makes for a lethal combination.
