3. Dynamics of Injury Crashes: The study showcased a decrease in injury crashes from 2018 to 2020, followed by a slight increase in 2021 and a subsequent decrease in 2022. Understanding these patterns can aid in formulating strategies for injury prevention.

5. Hit and Run Incidents on the Rise: Alarmingly, hit and run incidents, including fatalities and injuries, displayed a consistent upward trajectory. The study emphasizes the urgency of addressing this issue through enhanced law enforcement and public awareness.

Building upon these findings, Vanguard Attorneys recommends:

1. Targeted Educational Campaigns: Launching educational initiatives focusing on specific issues identified in the data, such as the dangers of hit and run incidents and safe practices for vulnerable road users.
