Lessons Learned from Fatal Crashes

Drive Smart!

Now that summer’s gone and the leaves are turning, we can look back on the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day and learn from them. Those 100 days are the most traveled of the year on Minnesota roads, and this year they once again proved tragic. Preliminary numbers show that 152 people died in traffic crashes during this year’s 100 most-traveled days. They accounted for 60 percent of all traffic deaths through early September this year.

Looking back on these crashes and their causes allows us to learn some essential – and tragic – lessons. Find them in our latest blog.
