Traffic Fatalities On The Decline | Denver Car Crash Lawyer

windy road

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released an estimate of traffic fatalities for 2011, which projects a decline from the number in 2010. Better still, even though the total number of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) also decreased nationally in 2011, fatality rate per 100 million VMT declined as well, indicating that in addition to the raw number of fatalities going down, it seems that each person was safer as well. Actually, these numbers have been decreasing year by year since their high point in 2005, including 17 consecutive quarters of decline recently, a period of just over 4 years.

Of course, it is excellent to see these numbers on a downward trend; nevertheless there are many fatalities annually in car crashes. More than 24,000 people were killed in traffic accidents between January and September of 2011. There are obviously many causes of these accidents, but the common thread is that each of them leaves a family to mourn for one of their own. Accidents are an unfortunate part of life, and certainly they are an unfortunate part of driving on the highway, however, it is also a sad fact that many traffic collisions are caused by reckless or negligent behavior by drivers.
