  • Abstract:
    In 2008, the death rate on Nebraska roadways was 1.1 persons killed per

    100 million vehicle miles traveled. This is the lowest rate ever recorded. The

    death rate in Nebraska, from 1961 to 2008 is represented in Figure 1. Even

    though the death rate fluctuates from year to year, there has been a general

    downward trend. Much of this reduction can be attributed to improvements in

    vehicle design, roadway engineering, emergency medical services, specific

    safety programs, enforcement and improved driver awareness.

    Figure 2 (page 3) depicts the number of fatal crashes per year for the

    last ten years. There were 188 fatal crashes in 2008, forty-two less than

    were recorded in 2007.

    Fatal accidents make up only a small portion of the total crashes in

    Nebraska. Property damage only (PDO) crashes make up the majority.

    Figure 3 (page 3) shows the percentage distribution of all crash types.

    In 2008, there were 188 fatal crashes, 12,310 injury crashes, and 22,106

    property damage only crashes. Fatal crashes made up .5% of all accidents,

    and injury and PDO crashes made up 35.6% and 63.9%, respectively.
