Auto Accidents as Public Health Crisis
While driving is essential for many to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous daily maneuvers. It is therefore important to know how to proceed in case you find yourself involved in a traffic collision.
On the AAA Foundation Web site, chief executive officer Peter Kissinger repeatedly labeled the epidemic of motor vehicle-related accidents a “public health crisis.”
