Car Accident

Here is some good news for you – the number of people killed on U.S. highways late year fell for the 6th straight year. The drop makes it the longest streak of decline in U.S. history.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, crash fatalities fell 1.7 percent to an estimated 32,310 from 2010. The fatality rate, which is measured by number of people killed for every 100 million vehicle miles traveled dropped to 1.09% from 1.11% in 2010.

While no reason was given for the drop, AAA said that the drop goes hand-in-hand with U.S. drivers traveling 1.2 percent fewer miles and gasoline prices increasing 6.7 percent.
