Connecticut Car Crash Statistics
Annually, car accidents account for a large number of injuries and fatalities in Connecticut. According to the Connecticut Crash Data Repository, in 2017 alone there were 115,416 reported car accidents. Of these, 269 resulted in fatalities and 1,336 are presumed to have resulted in severe injuries. According to the repository, the vast majority of passengers and drivers involved in these accidents range from age 15 to 30.
Thus far in 2018, road conditions seem to have improved somewhat. As of January 1st to November 3rd there have been 80,770 reported crashes. Of these reported, there have been 195 fatalities and 767 suspected cases of serious injury. Though the number of accidents for 2018 may not reach the number of accidents that occurred in 2017, each accident that occurs has the potential to change the course of someone’s life. Practicing safe driving and pursuing justice when other drivers are reckless is an important measure to keep roadways safe for all people.
Connecticut Distracted Driving Legislation
Unfortunately, distracted driving is a common cause of accidents and can have devastating consequences for all people involved. Due to the rise in accidents caused by distracted driving, the Connecticut state legislature passed a law mandating that people can only use their cell phones while driving with the use of hands-free devices like headphones or Bluetooth. Though fines can be persuasive in keeping some drivers off of their phones, many people still use their phones while behind the wheel.
Minor infractions could result in fines for first-time offenders range from $150 to $300. All following distracted driving offenses can jump up to a $500 fine. If a car accident occurs because of distracted driving or texting and driving, the party responsible could be charged with manslaughter, negligent homicide, or misconduct of a motor vehicle. Associated jail time could range from six months to ten years and ultimately total in fines up to $10,000.
