Traffic Deaths and Politics

From terrorism to violence, guns–and so much more.

There’s no shortage of topics for Democrats and Republicans to discuss this election season–but one activist is frustrated that one seems to be left off of that very long list.

“There’s a lot of commotion and political turmoil and heated debate over the gun situation–but, not much over traffic deaths” said Jim Hood–who said the auto industry might be to blame–despite a big increase in deaths on America’s highways in 2015.

“Mothers Against Drunk Driving had a lot of success twenty years ago or so with campaigning for more crackdowns on drunken drivers, but it’s going to take something like that, I think–to get this moving again” Hood said.

The State of Texas saw more than 35-hundred deaths on it’s roads in 2015.
