The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) released its 2018 report, which showed that serious car accidents are on the rise. In fact, nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 fatalities occurred as a result of serious accidents across the state of Arizona. According to ADOT data, the summer months bring a larger amount of traffic to state roads, leading to an increase in dangerous accidents.
