New York construction deaths up 41 percent in 2 years

A worrying number of construction workers are being killed in workplace accidents in New York, and an advocacy group says that lax safety standards on nonunion constructions sites and less-than-vigorous enforcement of industry safety standards by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are largely to blame. The New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health made the claims in its most recent annual report.

Roundabouts could reduce the risk of severe crashes

Some rural roads in New York are particularly prone to dangerous crashes and other incidents. When roads with high speed limits come together at intersections marked by only a stop sign, severe collisions are often inevitable. This is especially true when visibility in the area is limited. In an attempt to reduce the number of such crashes, traffic engineers are looking to roundabouts.

Basic safety tips drivers should follow

Drivers traveling on New York roads should be completely focused on their surroundings. Eliminating distractions can be an effective way for motorists to get themselves and their passengers to a destination safely. Safe driving means obeying posted speed limits and avoiding speeds that are too fast for road conditions. It also means not using a phone, eating or performing other tasks while a car is in motion.

NIH study shows teen drivers crash more once licensed

The National Institutes for Health has collaborated with university researchers on a new study about teen driving behaviors. Researchers observed 90 teen and 131 parent participants, using dashcams to observe drivers and the road while letting special software record speed and braking data. Their study period ranged from the time that drivers received their learner's permits to the year after they obtained their licenses. Teen drivers in New York may be surprised by the results.
