Car accidents aren't only a serious safety concern for people in Michigan. The World Health Organization (WHO) is warning about the threat that traffic collisions pose to people around the world. At a global level, vehicle crashes are now the leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 5 and 29. They are also the eighth most common cause of fatalities for people of all ages, taking more lives than tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. According to the WHO's 2018 Global Status Report on Road Safety, motor vehicle collisions took 1.35 million lives around the world in 2016.
New safety data regarding the emerging technology of external airbags is out from the ZF Group, a car parts manufacturer. Michigan drivers should know that these airbags, in the event of a side impact crash, could lessen the severity of occupant injuries by as much as 40 percent.

Winter driving in Michigan means sometimes icy and snowy roads, reduced visibility and cold.

Michigan residents who have vehicles with automatic braking features may be in less danger of getting into an accident. This is according to a recent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study.

The reason researchers chose the 2013 to 2015 time period is because not all vehicles from those years came with the automatic emergency braking system standard.
