Car Accidents Cost Every American $2,700 a Year – Here’s the Solution

Legacy Research Staff Report

Car accidents are the ninth-leading killer in the world.

They kill one person every 24 seconds.

And deaths from car accidents are growing faster than deaths from cancer, heart disease, and diabetes – combined.

In fact, in the last two years, the U.S. has seen an enormous spike in accidents.

Fatal car accidents have increased more than they did in the previous 50 years!

It’s clear there’s a direct reason for the recent surge in fatal car accidents in America…

The increasing use of cellphones, particularly while operating a motor vehicle.

Car insurance rates reached an all-time low in 2009 before rising sharply the last few years.

Take a look at a chart of insurance rates compared to a chart of smartphone ownership in America. The correlation is obvious.

I’m sure you’ve experienced it on the road. The car in front of you erratically swerves or slams on the brakes. When you finally pass it, you see the driver’s head down, buried in their cell phone. It’s terrifying.

And the person who ultimately pays the bills is the taxpayer.

According to research provided by the National Highway Traffic and Safety administration, fatal car accidents cost U.S. taxpayers $871 billion a year.

That’s nearly $2,700 a year out of every single American’s pocket.

However, there is a solution coming this year…

You see, by the end of 2017, the U.S. government is expected to mandate that every car has certain self-driving functions inside.

These self-driving capable cars could prevent 90% of all car accidents.

Three self-driving car companies could see their share prices soar after the mandate is announced.

In this Video Presentation, former Silicon Valley executive Jeff Brown – who has worked with self-driving technology for the last decade – will show you why these three companies could be the best-performing stocks of 2017.
