A Deadly Month For Nova Scotia Drivers

Updated: 22 hours ago

Drivers and pedestrians are being injured and killed in traffic at an alarming rate in Nova Scotia. These deadly incidents are commonly ignored by traditional news outlets and are instead accepted as being normal or acceptable. But I don't think it's normal at all.

During the month of June 2023 Nova Scotia experienced a significant wildfire which received attention from traditional news outlets for months after it occurred, yet not a single person was injured or killed in that fire. During the same month 18 people were killed on our roads and many others were severely injured. I decided to keep track of all of these tragic events in traffic to show how insane it is that the majority of people in society don't think of fatal driving accidents as a public safety concern. If this many people were dying from vape pens, guns, or anything else, politicians and community leaders would be taking immediate action to address the situation but when it comes dying while driving they do nothing.

The number one cause of premature death for young people in Nova Scotia is motor vehicle collisions.
