Driving in a vehicle is probably the riskiest thing you do. More than 2 million Americans every year suffer permanent injuries in a car accident, with many more suffering minor injuries. More than 30,000 people die every year from car accidents. This has a devastating impact on victims and their families.
The majority of car accident victims are the drivers, then the passengers of the car, followed by pedestrians, and lastly cyclists.
A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, and driver skill, impairment due to alcohol or drugs, and behavior, notably speeding and street racing. Worldwide, motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved.
