    • Abstract:
      Significant progress has been made to reduce motor vehicle crashes in Utah, with a rapid decline in the injury and fatal crash rates over the last 40 years. If Utah had the same fatal crash rate in 2010 as 1970 there would have been 1,206 additional deaths in 2010. These reductions can be attributed to a variety of factors, including: Traffic safety programs that have increased public awareness of traffic safety issues; Aggressive media and enforcement programs targeting driver behavior; Legislation mandating seat belt and child safety seat use, graduated driver licensing, and enhanced penalties for impaired and distracted driving; Improved engineering of roadways; Improved safety of motor vehicles; Advancements in emergency response and treatment. The personal and socioeconomic effect of motor vehicle crashes is a continuing concern in the State of Utah. In 2010, there were 49,368 reported traffic crashes on public roadways in Utah. These crashes involved 123,894 people, with 21,675 injured and 253 people killed. Traffic deaths were the second lowest total in Utah since 1974. Utah made progress in the following areas in 2010 when compared to 2009: The Utah death rate per vehicle miles traveled is still below the overall U.S. rate; Reported traffic crashes decreased from 51,367 in 2009 to 49,368 in 2010; The crash rate per miles traveled decreased 5% from 2009; Child safety seat use among ages 0-8 years increased for the seventh straight year; The number of motorcyclists killed decreased 30%; The number of crashes involving an alcohol-impaired driver decreased 15%; The number of speed-related crashes decreased 12%; The number of crashes involving a teenage driver decreased 9%; The number of unrestrained occupant deaths decreased 4%.
