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 level of traffic is one of the reasons leading to more traffic accidents: In 2015, there were some 6.3 million fatal, injury, and property damage crashes that occurred in the U.S. alone.

Despite such a large figure, the number of traffic-related fatalities as well as the rate of traffic fatalities per 100,000 population decreased significantly between 2006 and 2015: In 2015, there were approximately 10.9 traffic fatalities per 100,000 population, which is a significant decrease from the 17.88 traffic fatalities per 100,000 population reported in 1990. The region with the lowest road traffic fatality rate per 100,000 population is Europe, particularly in more isolated regions, such as Ireland.
