A major bank in the United States is predicting a fall in vehicle crashes due to the adoption of new car safety technologies. Statistics indicate that accidents have been on the rise in Wyoming and other states since 2011, but analysts believe the numbers will lower to their previous level with tech that counters distracted drivers. Smartphones and other devices used by drivers are blamed for the increase in crashes, but collision avoidance systems could counter the effect.
When winter comes in Wyoming, it brings with it snow and ice, so drivers will want to make the appropriate preparations. One of the first steps is to get a mechanic to check the vehicle's components, including the battery, ignition, brakes and wiring. The mechanic could also check for worn or underinflated tires and ensure the right antifreeze level.
