Traffic Deaths 2010
The National Safety Council announced that about 34,700 traffic deaths occurred in 2010. Partly a result of the poor economic conditions, this number represented the fourth year of declining traffic deaths. Nonetheless, the number is still too high and the declines have been slight. The most significant loss of traffic accidents is the human loss, the loss of life and relationships. These accidents also cause large economic losses nationwide, like lost wages and productivity, health care expenses, and property damage. The best estimates of the cost to society of automobile accidents causing death, injury or property damage was about 236 billion dollars in 2010.
