What's Behind The Increase in NH Traffic Fatalities?

Public Domain Pictures/ Alex Grichenko

This year, New Hampshire is experiencing a 22 percent increase in traffic fatalities. With the relatively recent introduction of a hands-free driving law, and vehicle safety features increasing every year, it raises the question: What is driving this increase in traffic deaths? We check in with some of the people on the front lines of New Hampshire's highway safety, and ask what we can do to prevent more fatalities on our roads and highways. 

GUESTS:

  • Capt. William Haynes: Commander, New Hampshire Office of Highway Safety
  • Marilyn Costa: Serves on the New Hampshire Traffic Safety Commission, and as the secretary of the NH Driver Education Teachers Association
