For the first six months in 2015, California is tallying 1,566 people who have died in a car accident, with a 20 percent increase from last year in the same period. This year is in the deadliest since 2007. With low gas prices and low unemployment rates, people can take vacations and drive longer, thus increasing the chances of traffic accidents. Nationally, 19,000 people have died and 2.2 million have sustained serous injuries after being in a car accident. The National City Council suggests that motorists use seatbelts, get plenty of sleep and designate a driver if drinking.
