Fatal Impaired Driving Crashes
Why Our Driving Concern?
The calculable costs of motor vehicle crashes are wage and productivity losses, medical expenses, administrative expenses, motor vehicle damage, and employers’ uninsured costs. The costs of all these items for each death (not each fatal crash) injury (not each injury crash) and per-damaged-vehicle are shown in the following table.
Average Economic Costs by Injury Severity or Crash, 2018
|No injury observed (O)||$12,200|
|Property damage only (cost per vehicle)||$4,500|
Estimates are the costs by severity of injuries as defined in sections 2.3.4 through 2.3.6 of the Manual on Classification of Motor Vehicle Traffic Accidents (7th Edition) ANSI Standard D16.1-2007.
- Driving is risky business; more than 90% of crashes involve human error. (NSC Injury Facts)
- Safety should lead. A comprehensive driver policy is important.
