A statistical projection of traffic fatalities in 2011 shows that an estimated 32,310 people in the U.S. died in motor vehicle traffic crashes. This represents a decline of about 1.7 percent as compared to the 32,885 fatalities that occurred in 2010. If these projections are realized, fatalities will be lowest on record (since 1949).
