  • Abstract:
    In keeping with recent trends, traffic fatalities in 2009 were down to 871, a 11.1

    percent decrease from last year. The total number of persons injured also declined

    4.9 percent to 70,931 and total crashes dropped 7.9 percent to 290,978. Most

    notably, the death rate per 100 million miles traveled was the lowest ever recorded,

    at 0.91.

    The lower death rate may have been caused by a decline in total miles traveled,

    down 5.0 percent; number of vehicle registrations, down 0.5 percent; and number of

    licensed drivers, down 0.2 percent.

    While Michigan saw another year of record seat belt use, alcohol-involved crashes

    continued to present a problem and contributed to 34.4 percent of all fatal crashes.

    Crashes involving alcohol made up 3.7 percent of all crashes, and while 18.2

    percent of all crashes resulted in injury or death, 41.6 percent of alcohol-related

    crashes resulted in injury or death.

    The information compiled in this report was gathered from the Michigan Traffic

    Crash Report Forms (UD-10) submitted by local police departments, sheriff’s

    offices, and the Department of State Police. Other related information was obtained

    from the Departments of Transportation, State, and Community Health.

    The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute produced this

    publication with data on file at the Michigan Department of State Police Criminal

    Justice Information Center as of March 15, 2010. We acknowledge, with

    appreciation, all involved agencies for their assistance.
