Tires and snow are the top two items on many drivers’ to-do lists this winter.
And, in some areas, the numbers are starting to get out of hand.
In the Northeast, where the winter season started earlier than most, the number of cars per 100 people climbed to 918.
That’s the highest number since the beginning of the season, according to a survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The average for the entire region was 889.
In California, the season is getting started sooner than most because of a snowstorm that caused severe conditions.
There were more than 1,100 car accidents and fatalities in the Golden State last week, according a report from the California Highway Patrol.
The report noted that drivers were more likely to get into accidents and crashes because they were more comfortable with their vehicles.
In Florida, there were more fatalities and accidents in the Florida Keys last week than in any other day since the storm started in December.
The National Weather Service said the number in the Northeast could climb to 10,000 per day by the end of the week.
That would be the highest death toll in the region since December of last year, when more than 5,000 people died in an air-conditioned plane crash near Orlando.
In Virginia, the death toll from the storm has climbed to 562.
The state has reported more than 2,000 deaths, more than any other state.
The weather in the West and Northeast has also been a factor.
A cold front is moving over the Northeast this weekend and is expected to continue this week.
The storm could bring snow to the Midwest, but not as much as some had feared.
The winter storm surge forecast in Washington state on Saturday showed up as a high of 4 feet.
That is the highest recorded level since records began in 1901.
The number of deaths from flooding, droughts and storms in the United States rose to 5,766, a record high.
The number of people who died from car accidents rose to 732, according the National Safety Council.
The Northeast has seen a spike in winter storm deaths in the past year.
Last year, the region saw a record 7,936 deaths and more than 4,000 injuries.
This winter has also seen some significant weather events that have had a big impact on roads.
The National Weather System warned of a potential winter storm in the South on Monday and it’s expected to bring rain, snow and sleet to the region.
In Texas, the snowstorm which caused the largest death toll was expected to linger into the weekend.
