Historically, crash rates tend to rise and fall with the economic tide. When times are good, more people take leisure trips and buy vehicles. Businesses deliver more goods. It adds up to more vehicles on the road and a greater chance of a crash. In rough times, activity ebbs, bringing crash rates down.\n\nSafety experts say, however, that a variety of other factors have contributed to the most recent declines. They credit everything from tough laws and better enforcement to better engineered roads and cars. Decades of engineering progress has succeeded in making crashes more survivable as safety features in cars and on roads have improved, they say.\n\nAlthough experts caution against reading too much into one year&#39;s worth of data, they say Arizona&#39;s 2011 numbers are alarming. Arizona&#39;s 2011 fatality record comes despite the fact that there were actually fewer people driving and fewer crashes. Alberto Gutier, director of the Arizona Governor&#39;s Office of Highway Safety, said the leading causes of fatal accidents are speeding, impaired driving, unused seat belts and inattention -- in that order.","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":133471,"object_id":"1345490024","particle_type":"quote","picture":null,"text":"\"The answer is enforcement, but you need officers to do that,\" ","content_type":"","title":"Alberto Gutier","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":133476,"object_id":"1345490113","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"There&#39;s logic to the argument, because four of the five leading contributors to fatal crashes stem from human behavior. As Graves says, highways and cars don&#39;t kill people; driver error does. The vast majority of Arizona&#39;s fatal crashes happened on straight, flat roads, in the daytime or on clear days, according to ADOT statistics. Graves and others cite distracted driving and fatigue as major problems. Mobile phones are more prevalent and smartphones offer more distractions. Although Arizona does not track the number of texting-related deaths, some studies have likened the risks of texting behind the wheel to driving drunk. The types of crashes are similar, said AAA of Arizona spokeswoman Linda Gorman, explaining that texting crashes involve people going too fast or too slow, drifting out of lanes, or involved in rear-end collisions. \"AAA believes that it&#39;s the mother of all distractions,\" she said, explaining that texting takes the eyes, hands and mind off driving. Other distractions affect fewer functions. Arizona is one of 11 states that does not have a texting ban, but research is mixed on the effectiveness of such restrictions.
