Traffic deaths spike despite pandemic

SAN DIEGO, CA – The California Department of Transportation is using its platform to promote safety on the roads.

An NBC News discussed the high percentage of traffic deaths seen across the county, even amidst the pandemic.

Caltrans provided a link to this article in their Twitter feed, reminding drivers that speed limits are designed to keep everyone safe.

Traffic deaths have been on the decline in recent years due in part to new safety features on cars. However, speeding on empty roads, combined with a lower level of enforcement to protect officers from COVID-19 exposure, has changed the trend for the worse.

In May, the crash fatalities climbed by more than 23 percent.
