KY Roads Fatalities

Saying it’s related to the pandemic, in the first half of 2021, traffic fatalities increased 13% on Kentucky’s roads.In 2020 traffic deaths increased 8% from 2019. Some Researchers, like Nick VinZant, a Senior Research Analyst at QuoteWizard.“We continue to see traffic fatalities increase,” VinZant said. “Initially, when we looked at statistics last year we thought that this was going to be a momentary increase because of changes related to the pandemic and we thought that they would go back down in 2021. That did not happen. They continue to go up and that’s a surprise and it’s worrisome.”VinZant found that younger drivers going too fast on less crowded roads are likely driving the increase.
