Tragic stories about wrong-way drivers and resultant horrific accidents on Sacramento freeways have been all over the news lately.  Fourteen confirmed lives have been claimed this year in this region as a result, and another recent fatal crash is under investigation to determine whether a wrong-way driver was the cause.

U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) statistics show that wrong-way drivers cause approximately 3% of collisions on divided highways.  Despite the low percentage, that type of accident is far more likely to cause fatalities and/or catastrophic injuries.
