The pandemic has changed our lives in a lot of ways this year. Time with family and friends is limited, travel is discouraged, and many more people are working from home. Because of these changes, you would expect to see some patterns shift in our daily lives. For example, small businesses and restaurants are suffering due to low foot traffic. However, some aspects appear to remain unaltered. Some very preliminary reports from PennDOT suggest that, although many more people are staying home, the number of accidents on Pennsylvania roads have not significantly changed. Although the exact cause has not yet been determined, many feel that these accidents are being caused by speeding. With fewer drivers on the road, people may feel like they can reach their destinations faster and not worry as much about safety. What do you think the cause may be?
