The Hidden Danger Of Keyless Ignition

The ability to start your car from the outside with the push of a button seems like a minor convenience. When the weather is bad, it can save you a few uncomfortable moments inside your vehicle.

In the most severe instances, keyless ignition mishaps can kill. Several deaths have been linked to these systems since they became popular.

Deadly DUI: The people most at risk for a crash

In 2011, the year for which the most recent data is available, 277 people died as a result of an impaired driver. That number reflects 23 percent of the state’s overall traffic fatalities.
