    • Abstract:
      The 2010 traffic fatality count was 937, up 7.6 percent from the 2009 figure of 871. Compared with 2009, injuries were down 0.6 percent and total crashes were down 3.1 percent. These figures translated into a death rate of 0.96 per 100 million miles of travel, up 5.5 percent from 2009, but remaining below the ten-year average of 1.11 (2001-2010). Exposure factors in 2010 showed increases in vehicle miles traveled and licensed drivers, and a decrease in vehicle registrations. Vehicle miles traveled were up 1.8 percent to 97.6 billion, the number of licensed drivers increased 0.04 percent to 7.1 million, and motor vehicle registrations were down 0.5 percent to 8.1 million. Safety belt use in Michigan was observed at 95.2 percent. Alcohol-involved crashes continued to present a problem and contributed to 30.4 percent of all fatal crashes. Crashes involving alcohol made up 3.5 percent of all crashes, and while 18.6 percent of all crashes resulted in injury or death, 42.8 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 Michigan 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 April 25, 2011. We acknowledge, with appreciation, all involved agencies for their assistance.
