Spokane Personal Injury | Traffic Fatalities Are Down

While browsing the internet, I found an interesting article from the National Safety Council (NSC):

The National Safety Council announced today that approximately 34,700 motor vehicle fatalities occurred in 2010. This marks a 3 percent decline from 2009 and the fourth consecutive year fatalities have decreased. Based on motor vehicle fatality trends of past recessions, NSC believes the present decline is partly a result of the poor economy. Fourth-quarter 2010 data reflected a slight increase in fatalities, and NSC fears as the economy continues to rebound fatalities may rise. 

I guess the recession does have its good points.
