Many in Norwalk may only view the collective cost of car accidents in terms of loss of life. This point of view is understandable, given that the only thing that cannot be fully compensated for following such an accident is the loss of a loved one.

Few likely realize that (according to information shared by Safer America) car accidents in America have a net financial impact of over $242 billion annually.

It seems like it can solve any crime. However, that is not entirely true.
