By STEVE BIDDENAssociated PressAssociated PressThe number of daily traffic deaths in the U.K. has been increasing over the past 20 years, according to new research by the British Government’s Roads and Maritime Services.
The new research also suggests that people are more likely to get hurt in car crashes.
The results from the UCL-led study, which was published Thursday, show that more than 1.5 million people died in the UK in 2015 and that the number of people in hospital for accidents on the road had increased from 6,300 in 2000 to more than 9,500 today.
The increase in deaths is partly due to the increase in speed limits on major roads, and also because the number and type of cars on the roads has changed, said Dr. Ian Fennell, director of UCL’s Transport Research Laboratory.
Drivers and pedestrians can’t get through a junction on a busy road without causing major delays, and accidents can be deadly. In the U
Walmart’s Highway 50 Nevada in Las Vegas has reopened after the weather made it necessary to close for the year.
The highway reopened Wednesday afternoon, with no detours.
It was the first time the highway has reopened since October 2016, when a large fire in the highway killed seven people.
The Las Vegas Fire Department said at the time that the blaze burned through about 2,600 acres of vegetation and forced a highway closure that lasted more than two months.
Highway 50 reopened on Nov. 15 after a fire in an abandoned building caused a closure that ended on Jan. 4, 2019.
Highway 52 reopened last year, after a road closure in February 2018 killed 11 people and damaged more than $2 billion in property.
Arizona lawmakers are set to vote Wednesday to approve a $1 billion highway package that will help to pay for a widening of the state’s highway system and other transportation projects.
The bill is expected to be approved by both houses of the Arizona legislature on Thursday, after it cleared a Senate committee and was sent to Gov.
Doug Ducey, a Republican, for his signature.
The Senate is expected on Friday to approve it.
Ducey said in a statement he would sign the bill into law if it passes.
Dutchess County, home to Phoenix, is among the states with the most congested roads, with more than 60,000 vehicles a day stuck in traffic on Interstate 10 in the metro area, the state transportation department said in December.
The Senate measure would provide funds to help the state build a widening and widening of its Interstate 10 north of Phoenix, a project Dutchees office said would take about $400 million, including $100 million for highway maintenance.
It would also help pay for construction of a bridge and widening that would connect the county to the Gulf of Mexico.
The highway bill, if approved by the Senate, would go into effect in 2018.
It was originally approved by a Senate vote of 34-18.
The House approved it in a 25-21 vote on Thursday.
The Arizona Senate voted 24-6 in February to approve Dutchmans request for a highway bill that was later blocked by Dutches veto.
In a scathing report, the Supreme Court has ordered the police to hand over all records of traffic violations and complaints, and to conduct an audit of their complaints.
The Supreme Court order, which was made public on Wednesday, comes amid a wave of complaints against highway patrolmen in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur district and in other states.
The Supreme Court had in December last year ordered the state’s top cop to take action against those who are not satisfied with the quality of police work.
The apex court also ordered the Uttar Pradesh government to issue a directive for the implementation of the court order, in order to protect public interest.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been keen on cracking down on such complaints.
