There is a growing danger out on the roads – wrong-way drivers causing deadly crashes. On average, about 11 people are killed in wrong-way crashes every year in Connecticut. In 2022, the state has already surpassed that. "The numbers are really staggering and they're really concerning,” said Josh Morgan, spokesperson for the Connecticut Department of Transportation. “We're not even halfway through the year and this has been the deadliest year in recent memory for wrong-way crashes on state highways.” This is where at Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center at the University of Connecticut comes in. The center collects and analyzes crash data across the state as they find the most effective ways to stop wrong-way drivers.
