Researchers look for main causes of auto crashes

Auto accidents are always a worry for drivers in Texas and across the United States, and they're quite frequent; at least 6 million car crashes happen every year in the United States. That figure has continued to grow, with the number of fatalities escalating in both 2015 and 2016. Researchers are examining these crashes to learn more about their causes in an attempt to prevent future car accidents as well as cutting down on the human cost in deaths and injuries. Technologies that track driver behavior and detailed accident investigations are both being used in order to develop an understanding of the crashes.
