Highway Deaths Increase in Pennsylvania

In 2012, deaths on Pennsylvania highways increased by 24 from 2011.  The total number of people killed on Pennsylvania's roads in 2012 was 1,310.  That is almost 4 people killed per day.  

It appears that the state law banning texting while driving may have decreased the number of crashes attributed to texting.  However, Pennsylvania does not have a law banning the use of cell phones while driving.  According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, Pennsylvania should enact a law that would ban talking on cell phones while driving.

Cell phones distract drivers from what they are doing, especially young drivers.
