US traffic deaths rise sharply after small decline in 2014
DETROIT - Government estimates show U.S. traffic deaths rose 8 percent for the first six months of this year, following a slight decrease in 2014.
Because of the increase, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it will hold a series of meetings nationwide to get ideas on how to counter human behavior issues that cause road deaths, such as speeding and distracted driving.
Government figures show that 32,675 people died in vehicle crashes last year, a 0.1 percent decrease from 2013.
