Safety Program (NHTSA): Despite
significant gains since the enactment of Federal motor vehicle
and highway safety legislation in the mid 1960's, the annual
toll of traffic crashes remains tragically high. In 2001,
the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations
(NHTSAs) Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and
General Estimates System (GES) revealed that approximately
42,116 people were killed and another 3.03 million were injured
on our Nations roadways. Traffic crashes continue to
account for 95 percent of all transportation fatalities and
99 percent of injuries, and represent the leading cause of
death for individuals ages 4 through 33. The large number
of crashes has placed a considerable burden on our Nation's
health care system affecting the economy reaching $230.6
billion a year, or an average of $820 for every person living
in the United States.
