Car Drivers - Statistics & Facts
Statistics and facts about car drivers
The number of people with a driver’s license in the United States grew from around 167 millions to about 214 millions in 2014.
Libya, Thailand, Malawi and Liberia are among the worst countries when it comes to fatal road accidents, while Houston, Phoenix and Los Angeles are regarded as the U.S. cities with the highest number of fatalities from running red lights between 2004 and 2013.
When buying a car, drivers in the U.S. tend to prefer Asian manufacturers and the Big Three American carmakers: General Motors, Ford and FCA. Although FCA was created through a merger between Chrysler and Fiat, the carmaker is often considered a U.S. company. In June 2016, about 230,000 Ford cars and 180,000 Chevrolet cars were sold. The most successful foreign OEM was Toyota, with sales of almost 200,000 vehicles under its Toyota brand in June 2016.
