Road Accidents in the U.S. - Statistics & Facts

The United States is one of the busiest countries in terms of road traffic with nearly 264 million vehicles registered and 218 million drivers holding a valid driving license.

The region with the lowest road traffic fatality rate per 100,000 population is Europe, particularly in more isolated regions, such as Ireland.
