In the News: Wieczorek Comments on Risky Drivers

Posted: September 23, 2015

In WalletHub’s 2015 study of states and high-risk drivers, William Wieczorek, director of Buffalo State Institute for Community Health Promotion shared his thoughts on how future developments may improve highway safety.

Wieczorek is cautiously optimistic about improved on-the-road safety as technology puts the car in charge of making safer choices. However, he was less optimistic about services like Uber and their role in giving impaired drivers safer options.

When it comes to graduated licenses, Wieczorek said that the evidence in their favor is “very clearly positive.” He also said that staying off the road during rush hour and late at night are ways to avoid high-risk drivers. However, he noted that it is not possible to always avoid risky drivers. “It only takes one risky driver to cause a tragedy,” said Wieczorek.
