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 218 millions in 2015.


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 2016, about 2.5 million Ford cars and 2.1 million Chevrolet cars were sold to customers in the United States. The most successful foreign OEM was Toyota, with sales of around 2.12 million vehicles under its Toyota brand in 2016.
