Nebraska teens engage in risky multitasking while driving

Nebraska residents can take solace in the fact that awareness campaigns aimed at informing teens of the dangers of texting while driving are producing results.

Distracted driving statistics show significance of U.S. problem

This represents a 4 percent increase in fatalities since 2011 and an 18 percent increase in injuries since 2011.

Preventing accidents in Nebraska

An estimated 2,300 people are killed each year in accidents involving signalized intersections.
