The number of traffic accidents is way down over the last few months as COVID-19 has kept many people at home and off the roads. However, the severity of the accidents has gone up tremendously. The accidents are worse and more people are getting injured. The cause seems to be that people are driving more recklessly with less traffic on the road.
The cause can be seen in the amount of excessive speeding tickets being written. With less traffic drivers are more inclined to drive fast and take greater risks. You’ll see many motorcyclists taking advantage of the open road, which many automobile drivers are not used to. There is also the issue of people thinking they will not get pulled over. While that may have been true in the first days of COVID because the Police didn’t want any exposure, it certainly is not the case now.
