Accident Related Fatalities at an All Time Low
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released 2011’s traffic accident data on
May 7, 2012. The data reflected the lowest fatality rate per mile since record keeping began in 1921. The data revealed that there were 32,310 car accidents in 2011, a drop of 1.7 percent from 2010. FoxNews.com reports that “This is the lowest number of accident related fatalities in over 60 years.” Experts believe the significant decrease can be attributed largely to the decline of the economy. Studies show that motorist drive less when the economy is down. “The number of miles driven on America's roadways declined last year by 35.7 billion miles, or 1.2 percent, the safety administration said (FoxNews.com).” Experts are unclear of whether these lowered rates will rise once the economy is restored to its normal state. Past events indicate that fatality rates do rise once the economy is reestablished, as people tend to drive more.
