Deadly automobile accidents are a tragic daily occurrence across the United States. In 2013 (the latest year complete data is available), 32,719 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in the U.S., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The good news is that over the past 10 years, there has been an almost 25% reduction in the number of fatalities on the nation’s roadways.
