NHTSA reports that traffic fatalities in the U.S. increased 8% during the first 9 months of last year, while total miles driven were up only 3%. This follows a similar pattern from 2015 when fatalities also increased faster than the number of vehicles on the road. No specific causes have been verified, but the pattern is particularly surprising since auto safety features continue to improve.
