Motor Vehicle Safety

Motor Vehicle Safety is a huge public health issue as motor vehicle–related injuries are the leading cause of death for people ages 1–34 in the United States, according to the CDC. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTS) provides interactive public access to fatality data on all vehicle crashes in the United States that occur on a public roadway through their web interface. Also they have a map of the United States where you can click on a state to view State GIS Fatal Traffic Crash Maps.
