Vehicle Collisions in Louisville
As of 2017, America has approximately 225.3 million licensed drivers, most of whom are on our roadways every single day. This means that driving responsibly is something that should matter to everyone.
Unfortunately, in spite of the steady reduction in the total number of motor vehicle accidents in the United States over the past several years, annual collision statistics still indicate that driving while distracted, driving under the influence, and drivers who disregard the speed limit are still the primary causes of car accident-related injuries and fatalities.
