IIHS Yearly Snapshot of Highway Fatalities based on FARS

Post by MSI » Mon Feb 16, 2015 1:26 pm

Yearly Snapshot 2013
  • A total of 32,719 people died in motor vehicle crashes in 2013. 1 The U.S. Department of Transportation's most recent estimate of the annual economic cost of crashes was $277 billion dollars. 2 Contributing to the death toll are alcohol, speeding, lack of safety belt use, and other problematic driver behaviors. Death rates vary by vehicle type, driver age and gender and other factors.

    In 1975, the U.S. Department of Transportation started an annual census of motor vehicle deaths, recording information on crash type, vehicle type, road type, driver characteristics, and a variety of other factors. Institute researchers analyze these data each year to quantify the public health problem of motor vehicle deaths.

    The facts are based on analysis of data from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).
