Stronger alcohol policies protect young people from dying in crashes caused by drunk driving, according to a new study co-authored by School of Public Health researchers. The study, published online in the journal Pediatrics and led by Boston Medical Center, supports the importance of comprehensive alcohol-control policies to reduce the number of young people who die in alcohol-related crashes. Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death among young people in the US. In Massachusetts, 40 percent of deadly car crashes involve a drunk driver, and the state falls within the top 25 percent in rates of young people killed in drunk-driving crashes. “Half of all young people who die in crashes are driven by someone who has been drinking," said lead author Scott Hadland, a pediatrician at BMC and the study's corresponding author. "But with stronger alcohol policies at the state level, we saw a significantly lower likelihood of alcohol-related deaths." http://www.bu.edu/sph/2017/02/14/strong-alcohol-policies-lead-to-fewer-drunk-driving-deaths-among-young-people/

Correspondent William Brangham reports on the recent changes to drunken driving laws in British Columbia that have led to a dramatic decrease (roughly 50%) in alcohol-related fatalities over the past two years. BC officials ramped up penalties on drivers who tested at a much lower blood alcohol level (.05, as opposed to the current .08 legal standard) and authorized police to immediately impound cars.

Alcohol abuse has become the leading cause of preventable death in the US; 35-year high. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention last year more than 30,700 people died from alcohol abuse or conditions stemming from alcohol consumption. These numbers have passed prescription painkillers deaths and heroin overdoses combined. While these numbers do not include fatal accidents, drunk driving crashes or homicide committed under the influence, experts believe the rise is simply that Americans are drinking more than ever before.

More Americans are dying by accident — largely because of drug overdoses. A National Safety Council report shows the number of accidental deaths hit a record high in 2014, the most recent year data was available. But it's a number that's been on the rise over the past decade. Accidental deaths are now the fourth-highest cause of death, falling behind heart disease, cancer and chronic respiratory disease. NSC statistics manager Ken Kolosh said: "It's all preventable. Every accident is preventable. But it's not necessarily the [fault] of the victim." He added, "Every individual has the opportunity to make choices to keep themselves safe." Americans' rising use of opioids — including heroin — has become a national issue highlighted in other recent reports. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said deaths from opioid and heroin use rose 14 percent from 2013 to 2014 and have nearly tripled since 2010. As for the NSC report, it also showed deaths from accidents like falling have more than tripled in the past couple of decades. An increasing elderly population from the baby boomer generation is likely the reason for this uptick. But other types of accidental deaths, like those caused by traffic crashes, are actually down. Better technology has made cars increasingly safer, although drunk driving is still a big concern. Texting while driving poses another traffic safety concern, although there's currently little reliable data about how this affects accident rates. The NSC notes that the leading cause of accidental death varies by age group. For infants younger than 1 year old, suffocation is the leading cause, while drowning tops the list for children ages 1-4 years old. Vehicle crashes are the leading category for ages 5-24. Poisonings and drug overdoses are the highest category for those in their mid-20s through mid-60s, and falls are the No. 1 cause of accidental death for those 65 and older.

As we move into the boozy holiday season, a word of warning: According to CDC numbers, Americans are killing themselves with alcohol at rates not seen since 1980. Last year, more than 30,700 Americans died from alcohol-induced causes, including alcohol poisoning and cirrhosis, which is primarily caused by alcohol use. In 2014, there were 9.6 deaths from these alcohol-induced causes per 100,000 people, an increase of 37 percent since 2002. The figures don’t include deaths from drunk driving, murders committed while drunk, and other intoxication induced accidents. http://fusion.net/story/248835/americans-dying-alcohol/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=/feed/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

What more can I say about this series? Yes, opioid overdoses are a problem. No, it is still not an epidemic. I dream about one day living in a world where people are willing to see the chronically ill as human beings just trying to live their best life, instead of as addicts out to game the system. My goal with these "Slow Death of Compassion" videos was to tell the other side of the opioid crisis narrative, a side that is *still* woefully underreported on mainstream media outlets. The problems of addiction and chronic pain cannot be solved by blanket legislation that introduces more complications into the lives of people whose lives are hard enough as it is.

A sad turn of events, to be sure. #GivePainAVoice #dontpunishpain #compassion #chronicillness #hydrocodone #oxycontin #painkillers #crohns #DEA #FDA #AnotherRxProblem #RxProblem ______________________ A quick summary: Society has been programmed to view the chronically ill as lazy and not trying hard enough due to an overwhelming amount of inspiring Internet stories highlighting incredible things a minority of people suffering from disease and/or disability have accomplished. The media has a bias against pain medications, referring to them as "drugs" instead of "medications" more often than not in a concerted effort to stigmatize the medications and by extension those who take them. Alcohol killed more people in 10 years than died of opioid overdoses: 139,093 deaths attributed to alcohol from 2000-2010 The CDC number puts opioid overdoses at 125,000 deaths over 10 years The DEA now wants to reclassify any medications containing hydrocodone as Schedule II instead of Schedule III. This will make them harder to prescribe and harder to obtain; in many cases doctors will require more in-person visits before re-prescribing which costs more money for those patients (not everyone has insurance). The public is okay with this because they now view the chronically is as people who are somehow lacking in motivation and who abuse drugs.The have this viewpoint because they don't truly understand the kind of pain these people are in, every hour of every day. ____________________________ Making it harder for those with chronic illnesses such as Crohn's and Fibromyalgia to obtain the pain medications they need to sustain any kind of tolerable quality of life does nothing to prevent accidental overdoses. It increases costs for the sickest of our citizens, and has the effect of stigmatizing both the medications and those who take them. Oxycontin has always been Schedule II and it has done nothing to prevent its abuse. People who want to misuse drugs will do so no matter what their classification; punishing the millions who take these meds responsibly, and who need them to live is abuse. The chronically ill have already been betrayed by their own bodies, and now their government as well. The DEA should never have reclassified these medications as Schedule II. _______________ Of course people always want to know "where do you get your stats?" so here are some of the pages I looked at when putting this together: http://responsibility.org/drunk-driving/drunk-driving-fatalities-national-statistics http://www.overdoseday.com/facts-stats/ http://www.myfibro.com/fibromyalgia-statistics http://www.cdc.gov/ibd/ http://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/impaired_driving/impaired-drv_factsheet.html

Drinking and driving is the number one criminal cause of death in B.C. with an average of 113 people killed and 3,400 injured each year. Progress to reduce drinking and driving halted in the mid-1990s and the subsequent approach resulted in poor outcomes with high rates of relapse. On September 20, 2010 the British Columbia Government implemented legislation that fundamentally changed the drinking and driving landscape. The legislation marked an innovative new justice system approach to drinking and driving which included new immediate, stronger, administrative sanctions for offenders, a more effective system of police enforcement and a new non‐court based system for appeals. The new approach aimed to reduce drinking and driving fatalities by 35 per cent by the end of 2013. The results from the first 12 months of the program show an immediate and significant impact with a 40 per cent reduction in drinking and driving fatalities.

Crash data from 2016 is now available from the NHTSA and USDOT. Overall, fatalities were on the rise, especially in areas concerning drinking, speeding, and unbelted driving. Motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians saw increases in fatalities as well. The total fatalities from crashes for 2016 came to 37,461, a marked increase of 5.6% from 2015. One of the highest rates was an 8.4% increase seen in van occupant fatalities. According to data collected by FARS, a census of fatal crashes in all 50 states (and includes D.C. and Puerto Rico) pedestrian, cyclist and motorcyclist fatalities showed high increases. Motorcyclists saw their highest number of fatalities since 2008. Additional data showed some hope, however. Fatalities from distracted driving and drowsy driving had decreased by a total of 5.7%. However, drunk driving, speeding, unbelted occupancy and cyclist deaths continue to be on the rise. According to the Houston car accident attorneys at Smith & Hassler, Texas leads the nation in traffic fatalities and has seen a 5.4% increase in deaths from 2015 to 2016. https://www.smithandhassler.com/personal-injury/auto-accidents/ Like Us On Facebook For Breaking News Updates: https://www.facebook.com/lawwirenews/ Got A Story?

Weather and road conditions are a common cause of many car accidents, but many accidents are caused by failure of a driver to keep his attention to the road, and operation of his vehicle. Understanding the factors that contribute to car accidents can help drivers avoid them. Some of the most common causes of car accidents include: Speeding – Failure to follow the legal speed limit is perhaps one of the leading causes of car accidents that occur within the United States. Driving faster than what is considered safe for the road conditions is considered speeding, regardless of the posted speed limit. Using a Device – Texting or talking while driving, or even playing with a phone, music player, or GPS device, increases the level of danger on the road, as drivers become distracted. Many states have begun passing laws prohibiting phone use while driving, and some have expanded these “cell phone laws” to include any distracting activity. These are called “distracted driving laws.” Driver Fatigue – Driving while extremely tired can lead to falling into a trans-like state, or even falling asleep at the wheel. When a driver nods off or falls asleep, there is a very high chance of becoming involved in a car accident. Drunk Driving – Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is dangerous, and often fatal. Drinking and driving, increases the probability of causing a car accident is increased by 900% over other drivers. Defective Auto Parts – When a part on a vehicle is defective or goes bad, it can cause the vehicle to operate in an unsafe manner. Common defects include brake issues, defects in tires, defective air bags, top-heavy design, and more. When an accident does occur, defective safety features can increase the chance of serious injury or death. Rubbernecking – Drivers looking at things along the roadway, such as sunsets, traffic accidents, flashy billboards, and other things, are distracted, and commonly cause accidents. Poor Weather Conditions – Weather conditions that leave the roadway wet or icy, or reduce visibility, pose a danger to vehicles on the road, and require drivers to pay extra attention, and to slow down. High winds, blowing dust, fog, and torrential downpours are common causes of accidents. Traffic Collision A traffic collision, also called a motor vehicle collision (MVC) among other terms, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole or building. Traffic collisions often result in injury, death, and property damage. A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, and driver skill, impairment due to alcohol or drugs, and behavior, notably speeding and street racing. Worldwide, motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved. In 2013, 54 million people sustained injuries from traffic collisions. This resulted in 1.4 million deaths in 2013, up from 1.1 million deaths in 1990. About 68,000 of these occurred in children less than five years old. Almost all high-income countries have decreasing death rates, while the majority of low-income countries have increasing death rates due to traffic collisions. Middle-income countries have the highest rate with 20 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, 80% of all road fatalities by only 52% of all vehicles. While the death rate in Africa is the highest (24.1 per 100,000 inhabitants), the lowest rate is to be found in Europe (10.3 per 100,000 inhabitants).

The highway death toll has been plunging rapidly in recent years, and safety experts are crediting a number of factors, including improved roadways and a crackdown on drunk driving. But a new study puts the spotlight on vehicle design and improved technology for both preventing crashes and keeping motorists alive when they do occur. A record total of nine models sold during the 2011 model-year have had a death rate of zero, meaning no driver was killed in a crash involving those vehicles during the period studied by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. IIHS released a report on the findings Thursday. Significantly, these are not ultra-exotic products. They include mainstream models like the Honda Odyssey minivan and Subaru Legacy sedan, as well as the big Mercedes-Benz GL SUV. IIHS vice president and chief research officer David Zuby, "We know from our vehicle ratings program that crash test performance has been getting steadily better. These latest death rates provide new confirmation that real-world outcomes are improving, too." http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/42d6e836/sc/8/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cbusiness0Cautos0Crecord0E90Emodels0Ehave0Ezero0Ehighway0Edeaths0Eiihs0Esays0En2960A36/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

The force of the impact split the bus in half, shattering its windows while gravel spilled from the overturned truck into the damaged vehicle. Forty-one people were on board the bus at the time. Ria Novosti reports the truck driver is an Armenian national who has been fined six times for violating traffic rules over the past 12 months. Russian officials say he survived the crash and has been hospitalized. According to Reuters, "death rates from Russian road accidents are higher than in most Western countries, and lawmakers are moving to toughen drunk-driving penalties. The country has gained fame for its erratic drivers, with footage of cars overtaking on blind corners, rear-ending each other and careening off the road amassing millions of views on YouTube."

"Apps are designed to get your attention." That is according to Mark Milner of ICBC`s Road Safety Program, a program that is devoting more and more resources to discouraging distracted driving. It`s a fight that Milner admits is challenging. Unfortunately, the apps are playing a significant role in driving up accident rates. He says, "The average person touches their phone up to 2,000 times a day and the addicted user up to 5,000. This is a contributing factor to the number of fatal accidents associated with distracted driving. The numbers of fatalities exceed those associated with impaired driving and they`re close to speed-related deaths rates." ICBC says over the past five years, close to 400 people have lost their lives due to distracted driving. The insurance company, along with police forces throughout the province, are clamping down with an increasing number of counter-attack programs. Unlike drinking driving roadblocks, the police simply walk or cycle through a row of cars stopped at a red light. Much to their chagrin, they do not have to conceal who they are – drivers focused on their phones don`t see them coming. Fines for use of your phone when driving are $543 on the first infraction, another $368 if you get nabbed a second time and $3,000 if you get caught again within 12 months. After a second ticket, ICBC is going to review your driving record and could remove your driver`s license. --- Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue presents Conversations That Matter.

http://www.proclipusa.com/ http://www.proclipusa.com/ http://www.proclipusa.com/ Don't become a statistic: Distracted driving causes 11 teen deaths everyday. Car phone mounts are key for drivers in states like Washington, as the law now highly suggests the use of a mounting device such as a dashboard mount. This new 2017 law dictates that Washington drivers cannot drive and use wireless communication devices for any reason, unless the device is used in a hands-free mode or with a Bluetooth device. This includes texting, calling, taking photos, flipping through music, using map services, and streaming videos. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/proclipusa/?...

It's Teen Driver Safety Awareness Week! Start the conversation in your family, and help prevent teen crashes. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens 15-19 years old. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 6 teens die every day from motor vehicle injuries in the United States. That's 2,270 teens who die each year. Of those teens, the death rate for male drivers and passengers was more than two times the number of female drivers and passengers who died in motor vehicle crashes. According to CDC, 17% of teen drivers involved in a fatal crash reported a BAC of .08% or higher. Of the teens involved in intoxication, fatal crashes, only 36% were wearing a seatbelt. It may be possible that 64% of the crash victims could have been saved just by wearing a seatbelt. Timing plays a factor in when fatal teen crashes ocurr. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays Parents can set a an example for their teens. The CDC has some recommendations for parents: -Set a limit to the number of teens your young driver can have riding with them. Studies show that increasing the number of drivers increases risk for accident. -Make sure your teen is aware of the risks of distracted driving, impaired driving, not wearing a seatbelt, nighttime driving, and reckless driving. Teen driving is an exciting part of growing up. And independence is a way to gain maturity and responsibility. But understanding the risks associated with driving a vehicle are important for a safe commute.

Mom-of-two suffering from postpartum depression was found 'drunk with a bottle of rum and lying across the center console of her SUV' when police discovered her dead baby daughter, who appeared to have frozen to death. Rachel McAfee, 36, was charged with neglect of a dependent causing death Her three-month-old daughter Emma was found on the floor of passenger seat Police said Emma was 'cold to the touch' and she was pronounced dead at scene McAfee and Emma had been reported missing by her husband on Monday night A witness saw McAfee holding Emma in her arms in the car on Tuesday morning McAfee said she was fine but when the witness saw the car again after returning from work, and found McAfee passed out inside, she called the police John McAfee said his wife had been struggling with alcoholism and postpartum depression and police described her as 'suicidal' . An Indiana mother appeared to be intoxicated and was lying across the center console of her car with a bottle of rum when her baby was found dead, police said. Rachel McAfee, 36, was arrested and charged with neglect of a dependent causing death after officers found her inside her SUV in Indianapolis around 3pm on Tuesday. Also inside the car was McAfee's three-month-old daughter Emma, who was found on the floorboard on the vehicle's passenger side. She was 'cold to the touch and appeared to be deceased,' court documents state. Emma was pronounced dead at the scene. A doctor said Emma's body showed 'signs that are consistent with cold-related deaths', according to Fox 59. An autopsy is pending. The car wasn't running, had run out of gas, and the battery was dead, police said. The temperature at the time was 9 degrees F. McAfee, a married mother-of-two, appeared to be intoxicated and had 'no concept of time' when police found her, according to court documents. She also was suffering from 'short-term memory loss about the death of her child'. McAfee was taken to a local hospital, where she is currently being treated for frostbite. It was a grisly end to the desperate search for McAfee and baby Emma after they went missing on Monday. John McAfee reported his wife and daughter missing at 7pm that night after McAfee failed to drop off Emma at his parents' house. Her car was found less than 0.1 miles away He said McAfee was supposed to go to an 'intervention concerning her excessive drinking' that morning. She never showed up. John told investigators that McAfee had been struggling with drinking and sometimes hid vodka bottles around the house. He said she was 'known to drink alcohol until she passes out'. John said McAfee had also recently been struggling with postpartum depression. She was described as 'possibly suicidal' in a press release put out by police. But John insisted in an interview that aired before McAfee and Emma were found that his wife had never threatened to harm herself. 'My biggest concern is my daughter,' he told WTHR. 'Obviously, she can't fend for herself. My wife's not the most fit mentally, currently, so that's a big concern.' John said his last conversation with McAfee on Monday was normal and didn't raise any red flags. 'Just, "Hey, babe. Love you. See you later,'" he said. 'Gave each other a kiss and walked out the door.' A witness told police she had seen McAfee in her 2011 silver Subaru Forester around 7.30am on Tuesday morning. She said McAfee was wearing a coat and had Emma in her arms. When the woman asked if she was okay, McAfee replied that she was fine. When the witness returned home from work around 2.45pm, she saw that McAfee's car was still in the same place. She noticed that McAfee was no longer wearing her coat and was now lying across the center console. The witness then called 911 and asked for a welfare check.

WXII 12's Kenny Beck speaks with David Daggett & Griff Shuler, of Daggett Shuler Law Firm, about the 2016 Safe Sober Prom Night Program. With North Carolina's drunk driving death rates of people age 20 and under 30% higher than the nations average, promoting awareness is imperative, and the SSPN program does just that. The Safe Sober Prom Night Program was founded in 1991 to encourage teens to stay safe and drug and alcohol free during Prom. Over 500 High Schools in North Carolina and South Carolina have participated in the program. Since its inception more than 500,000 students have signed the Safe Sober pledge. In addition, more than $45,000 has been awarded to schools with the highest percentage of participation. This year, West Forsyth Career Center senior Josh Smith won the annual Safe Sober Prom Night T-shirt design, a $500 scholarship, and his winning design printed on 15,000 shirts to be distributed to high schools across the Triad. The Safe Sober Prom Night Program creates awareness about the dangers of drugs and alcohol – particularly around Prom time. The Program asks students to sign a pledge card agreeing to stay drug and alcohol free on prom night. High Schools across the Carolinas use this program on its own, but many also combine it with other activities including dramatizations of accident scenes involving drunk drivers. Some schools involve their SADD or drama departments, while others use the prom committee or other enthusiastic students. Click here to check out videos of some Safe Sober Prom Night Events. Daggett Shuler is proud to be part of our community.

Getting a driver's license is a rite of passage for teenagers, but it also marks the start of their most dangerous years on the road. Teen drivers have much higher crash rates than adults. Fortunately, there are ways parents can help to reduce the risks. This video highlights the stories of three teens whose lives ended too soon and examines common factors such as inexperience, immaturity, and speeding that lead to many crashes involving young, novice drivers. Teens interviewed speak frankly about their driving habits. They recount crashes and near misses. They describe minding their manners when grown-ups are along for the ride but relaxing the rules when they're with friends. Institute experts provide insight into the crucial role parents play by enforcing their state's graduated licensing laws, establishing their own rules, and providing plenty of supervised time behind the wheel.
