Its time to call MVAs what they are: a car crash, not an accident. As the New York Times recently reported, a growing number of safety advocates are campaigning to change a 100-year-old mentality that they say trivializes the single most common cause of traffic incidents: human error. Roadway fatalities are soaring at a rate not seen in 50 years, resulting from crashes, collisions and other incidents caused by drivers. Almost all crashes stem from driver behavior like drinking, distracted driving and other risky activity such as texting. There is nothing accidental about negligent and reckless driving that caused 38,000 people to die in car crashes in 2015.
