Is franking causing car and truck accidents? According to an Associated Press report showing an analysis of traffic deaths and U.S. census data in six drilling states shows that in some places, fatalities have more than quadrupled since 2004. News reports are spreading the alleged connection. However, is this just another attempt to add to the negativity surrounding fracking? According to police authorities Karnes County, Texas, they have been overwhelmed by the surge in serious accidents. Could that be because of population growth in the area and perhaps fatigued drivers or additional drunk drivers on the road?
